I pay enough taxes. The parks just got 13 million in 2012 to renovate and pave the grass and trails in the parks. Now I have to pay to get into the beaches and out of the parks. This is not in the parks mission statement. Parks have been paid for by the tax payers yet we have to fork over more. Does any one else find something wrong with this picture? State Parks are free and they are not in threat of being shut down every year. Start using our park money more wisely Mr. Lansley.
