I'm not sure this is such a great idea... the park is extremely small and crowded already.

Bad idea, the birds and the bees form a delicate ecosystem:

During the spring wildflower bloom, it is home to some 400 species of bees, more than any place in the world.

Endangered condors were released in the area in 2003 as part of the species' recovery program, and it is home to several of the estimated 226 existing birds that live in the wild.

I'd rather the condors and bees survive and thrive.
