Constitution Park’s reservation park policy must be addressed

To the Editor:
Cumberland Times-News

— The Constitution Park “reservation policy” for pavilions at Cumberland requires major changes if “first come, first served” is the policy for reservations and that date is Feb. 4, and City Hall opens at 8 a.m.

I traveled 150 miles to comply with those demands and found myself third in line. To my dismay the city clerk informs me she has already booked my requested site; and that site was not requested by either person standing in front of me.

My reservation was unsuccessful despite my efforts to secure them honestly. The city hall policy smacks of nepotism and favoritism. Our family had a great time at the park last year.
