 Lots of people don't realize that the ''park site'' which includes the bulding, pick-nic area and arbor was not returned in 2006. Possible liability issues keep tribal members from maintaining these areas. Please get all facts before making any judgement. Says Hcomby

The Choctaws are working on grants to restore the area and in the meantime, are relying on the kindness of tribe members to take care of the site.  It is sometimes a slow process but no less important for them to maintain.  They are very attached to the site and it is still very important
    to them. Says Anna K

Went to see this park today and was shocked at the condition. Grass head high, picnic areas unusable, all the windows in the buildings busted out. It looked like it had been abandoned for years. Research showed that the state had turned it back over
to the Choctaws last year. The condition of this property today is very telling as to how much they value their ''Mother Land'' as they called it at the ceremony where they took the deed to the property.

It looks like they care more about the casinos and the money they generate. Says Shocked by the Condition
