Former Southfield Downs Mobile Home Park

Southfield Downs was a mobile home park dating back many decades. Retail strip malls and expensive apartments were eventually built, giving the aging park a unique setting among more modern buildings. Southfield Downs remained popular for poor families seeking good schools and people working low-income jobs nearby. The park was sold about 10 years ago, and, along with the city's other mobile home park, was vacated. It was such a significant landmark that even today, people refer to the new developments there as "the old Southfield Downs land" and some still haven't gotten used to driving by and not seeing the mobile homes there anymore. I never lived in the park but it was so legendary a landmark that I still get sad when I realize its gone.
