I served on the Steering Committee for the Atherton Dames at the time the park was opened to public use. I clearly remember that Olive Holbrook Palmer stipulated that the park was to be used as a quiet refuge where one could stroll among the lovely gardens.
I was concerned when the town allowed Little League in the park, fearing they would eventually take over. That is what seems to be happening with the bleacher situation.
I don't have a copy but I would like someone to publish the terms of her will regarding the park and its intended use. That should be honored and I'm sure it would not allow huge bleachers and the attendant noise and traffic problems.
