Not sure how I feel about this. Yah it's cool that a lot of these parks won't immediately close... but what does it mean in general for the functions of the state to be taken over by private entities? In many of these cases, it was wealthy donors who disproportionately funded the parks near their homes.

This feels like a step in the direction of privatizing more parks.
