Published: May 23, 2010 at 4:02 PMReading this article actually made me a little sad. I hate seeing something that used to be so beautiful go to trash because of modern developments. PLUS, there still is a Busch legacy today. The old Busch Gardens wasn't a completely abandoned idea-- they should've transferred more of the remnants of the old park into the existing parks today. I know... I know... the parks aren't owned by Busch anymore... but I'm sure each existing park would still like to showcase some of their history. Some of those momentos would've been great to show during Busch Gardens Tampa's recent 50th birthday celebration last year.
And I've been to Huntington Gardens. VERY, VERY beautiful.
