A nice bit of info. Thanks! I lived a three blocks away in Magnolia for a few years, and that park was in bad shape. I believe they have fixed it up but I will have to ride by soon and see. They must have changed the names of the streets because Magnolia and Albertson Ave are not near each other today.
Here is the park.
My mistake, Guy—the land devised for the park stood at Albertson and Evesham avenues, as your map so clearly delineates. My bifocals interferred with the proper viewing of the source material: the word “Magnolia” was located immediately underneath “Evesham” in the newspaper article and I read the wrong word as I typed. My bad!
P.S. I’ve corrected my original posting!
