Budget for parks is hurt by deficit

Budget for parks is hurt by deficit - The Boston Globe
As a gubernatorial candidate last year, Deval Patrick delighted environmentalists with a pledge to spend an extra $10 million his first year in office to begin fixing the state's long-neglected parks system. But to the dismay of park advocates across the state, the budget Patrick released last week only increased funding for parks by about $740,000.

This is particularly relevant to Allston and Brighton, where so much of our parkland (the Charles River and reservoir) is owned and maintained by the DCR.
