The space where office depot is now. It used to be a small strip center with a men's store, globe or exodus iirc. And some other little retail spots. Next to Delman was a women's lingerie store we always chuckled about.

That is where Massad’s was originally, wasn’t it?  He moved further east on 15th after that was demolished.

Yes that's it. And the cutting edge men's store was Exodus. Wild stuff. All pretty much walk up stores and not much parking. 15 th street was very pedestrian friendly.

I have also observed that that our parks have the largest shortage of parking spaces
Turkey Mtn, Riverparks, Woodward...

Lack of connected biking infrastructure causes this in my opinion.

To some extent, I agree. I live ~3 miles from the river and can easily get there via "share the road" routes. If I couldn't, I would be far more likely to drive. That could be improved from some parts of the city.

But like everywhere else, the parks shouldn't be designed with parking for "peak demand." 95% of the time there is plenty of parking (go look right now!). But on weekends when it is 80F and sunny, it will be packed no matter how much parking you put in. And that's OK. Park a block away and walk. Consider biking or walking to the park.  Park at another section of the park and walk a mile down the path.
