Lots of squares in london are like this. Keys only for the park if you live on the square.
Sell for 250 a key
So it's a golf course without the golf, beer, more concrete?
I'm surprised there aren't more private parks in cities. $7500 is a lot but $200 or $400 a year would be wonderful. I paid $100 for a private library in San Francisco so I could feel safe, use functioning bathrooms, and wouldn't have to see junkies shooting up on the steps outside.
Soo, from what I read...the park is actually private property and is more of a front lawn for the residential areas than a park. And just like people can't just camp out on your front lawn, they can't just enter that park.
It's beautiful. We used to get coffee down the street and walk the sidewalks along the park on sunny days.
I used to have a key for a private beach in northern California. It only cost like 100 bucks a year but my 16 year old self felt special :)
Just trespass and get paid lots of money:
"In 2001, Aldon James of the National Arts Club that adjoins the park brought about 40 children, mostly minorities, into the park from the nearby Washington Irving High School on Irving Place. The trustee at the time, Sharen Benenson, called police alleging that the children were trespassing. The police refused to take action. Later, a suit was filed against the park's administration in Federal Court. The suit was settled out of court in 2003. Most of the children settled for $36,000 each, while one received $50,000"
