Deed may prove a problem for the city

Feb 3, 2012 — The original deed to the playground was published in today's Capital. It was written in the early 1900's and clearly states that the land is intended to be a playground for the children of Annapolis. While the actual language is archaic and discriminatory, the intent remains clear -- this is not land that should be used for this purpose.
