I lived there as a kid from 1957 to 1966. The owner of the property Dr. Gabriel Elias REFUSED to make any repairs to anything. The roads were full of holes, sewage backed up into the streets, damaged units were boarded up instead of fixed and no upgrades to the properties were ever made. His brother Hymie used to drive through at times and we'd throw rotten apples at his car. The only good thing sbout living there was all the houses were very close together so you got to know alot of neighbors and for us kids there were plenty of kids nearby to play with. Everybody was within walking distance of each other so you really got a sense of community living there.

I was born and raised in Lacey Park. 1973-1992. The best lesson learned growing up in Lacey Park was that knowing you were already starting your life from the very bottom, therefore it inspired you to go no where else... but upward.

We lived in Willow Grove as kids. I remember my father drove me through Lacey Park (I think he called it Lacey Gardens) to show me what poverty looked like. I remember it as a very sad place.

I lived in Lacey Park until 1959. I remember lots of kids and even as a young child I felt a sense of community there. All my relatives lived there too. My Dad was in the Navy at the time. Lacey Park was real sad looking for awhile, but now looks alot like I remember it.

I Lived in Lacey Park From 1951-1973. I'm proud to be from The Park. "Outsiders" used to make fun of us, but you can rest assure that they never knew what it was like to live in a tight nit community like ours. We were there for each other. We appreciated what we had and what we didn't have. I just attended The Parker reunion in 2010, and it was great seeing people I haven't seen in 40 years. I have never heard about any other town, ANYWHERE, doing that. Love being a PARKER.
