    Coral Shores is a small neighborhood hidden and tucked away and probably not on the radar of the city's Parks officials. We have zero parks, and the closest public city park is a 45 minute walk away. Buying a vacant property and converting it to a passive pocket park would be a great option. Don't forget about Coral Shores, please!!
