Exactly! Spoken with experience- I can tell you have worked in parks as I do. Park tenants can and do everything bad to the dirt- pour motor oil on it, crap
in it, dump toxic waste in it, and destroy the utility
connections coming out of the ground below.
Don’t forget all of the social issues that can bring a good park to its knees in a very short time- layoffs, unemployment, illegal activities, and bad weather. Parks are wiped out from tornadoes and even very bad hailstorms I saw this summer. It takes deep pockets and the desire to be a social worker, sheriff, banker, politician, and clergyman to own a park longterm.
