Everything you need to know about the worth of Mud Island can be found in how children react to the river park. They don’t care about attendance numbers or demographics or mission statements.
If they don’t see a lot of other people around, they’re likely to regard that as a good thing – more for them in the way of fun.
They tell friends of their journey to what is probably an unknown spot to them, adding a sense of mystery.
With some setting of realistic priorities and a lifting of the worst recession since the Great Depression, Mud Island can blossom in a way it was meant to when it was built nearly 30 ago.
Start with these basic things and we predict other items such as restaurants will come online without having to repeat the ’90s debacle in which the attainment of a Hard Rock Café was built up as a civic milestone that would transform the city.
