New Buck Pocket Park (with City Bucks) opens at Randolph and Franklin
Showmen's League Building that, for over half a century, was home to Harry Heftman and his hot dogs. According to the original agreement, the park should now be turned back to the city "in perpetuity", with John Buck agreeing to provide ongoing maintenance.
A new wall created to hide an alley driveway creates a space that is, in itself, incredibly ugly.
a name that recognizes its history: Showman's League Park, or, better yet, name it after Harry Heftman, who provided the spot the kind of real character that it's currently lacking.
