Meh. Much like Logan Circle is today, making 1500 block of Vine a park would just yield a fractured set of smaller "parks" with little-to-no cohesion and wildly variant usage rates. Besides, Logan Square is just two blocks away, and Baldwin Park three. Much better to let those parcels for development instead.
