The Hyattsville City Council established the Race and Equity Task Force to ensure the City is welcoming and supportive of people of all races, ethnicities, income levels, abilities, and genders. Please help the Task Force develop a list of recommended actions by taking this brief survey.
Change is hard. I totally get it. However, this article - http://hyattsvillelife.com/now-unmapping-segregation/ details how the park got it's name and the raciest, discriminatory practices that were mandated to be part of the deal in giving the land to the City. Times have changed and we should not be honoring/memorializing the name Magruder. I've heard HOPE Park being suggested by others. Don't really care that much other than removing "Magruder".
