Abercrombie Park expansion approved
The City Council gave its final approval to a $1.74 million purchase of 2.3 acres bordering Abercrombie Park, coveted by city staff as a rare opportunity to expand parkland in Florida's most-densely populated county.
Rare Native American artifacts are also present on the property, currently a private home and grounds owned by Evelyn Kuttler, the former wife of retired St. Petersburg College President Carl Kuttler.
The property at 8336 40th Ave. N will be added to the West St. Petersburg park by the end of next year, said Parks and Recreation Director Mike Jefferis.
The vote was unanimous.
