A park can't be enhanced by making it not a park. A park is open land, open space. To be used for whatever temporary activities the people of the moment see fit. But once it becomes a Presidential Center, it is no longer open space. It is that institution, that function, and that only, for the next century at least.

Once that land is gone, it is gone forever. It can never be replaced.
