Mysterious Ft. Greene Park

bampark2 Several months ago, a reader emailed me about the mysterious park across from BAM:

Hi Clinton Hill Blog! All summer, I walked to work past a seemingly lovely park at the corners of Ft Greene Place, Fulton Street, and Lafayette Ave. There's a few benches in there and I'd love to sit and read there. What's the deal with this park?  Who owns it? Why isn't it open? Thanks, Amelia

The park, officially called BAM park, has been a point of contention at least as far back as 2004, according to this Brooklyn Paper article.

I've never once seen it open - have you?  It would be nice to have a green space to sit and wait in while waiting for one of the busses that stops on the north side of the park.  (It would also be nice for a wedding!)
