    Can we afford to spend more than 20 million dollars on one park with the economy like this?

    If Riley wants to highligh improvements to State Parks he should make improvements that would better serve the family's with a lower budget to spend than the upper society. If they can afford to play golf, they would not be going to state parks. Tent camping would not protect their precious golf clubs.
