Why won't Modesto build park south of Johansen High?

May 5, 2013 

Why is there so much political play to build everything by Enochs High School when there has never been a park with basketball courts or anything entertaining for kids south of Johansen High School?

We have plenty of kids ages 6-17 in the Yosemite Boulevard-Claus area, who need a place to play or get out. I have to constantly drive with extra caution in the Yosemite Meadows area with kids having no place to play but in the street. Sounds fishy to me.

Editor's note: The new Mary Grogan Park, next to Enochs High, was paid for in part with developer fees collected from home building in the area. Developments once envisioned near Johansen have not materialized.
