What name would you have liked to see Ladywrench?

I agree with Ladywrench. The name sounds like a commercial for lawn care. Why not Ezzard Park or even The Park @ Midtown Lawrenceville? At least with one of these names people would know that you were talking about a park.

The park should name:The Heart of Lawrenceville Park to attract visitor and every one even have a little romance...
