Scoville Park, Oak Park's front lawn, site of summer concerts, Ultimate Frisbee games, sunbathing, strolling (with or without strollers), climbing on the WWI memorial, toddlers tumbling down the hill, and shortcuts to and from the train — all gone till next spring.
Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone. They're renovating paradise and putting up a chain-link fence. Here's hoping they preserve the charm of our best green space. Farewell, Scoville.
On the bright side, Mills Park is looking particularly lovely these days.
