(Lots of writing, I got creative... it's a story)
There once lived a man named Roger (or so the legend goes)
that owned a great big chunk of farmland in Tarvastu,
the years passed and the cities grew,
and before he knew, his trees were dying
and some rich developers buying
all that surrounded his land.
Roger wasn't going to give up,
all the land where he grew up.
He had a plan, he had a dream
that the city too will soon enjoy
the farm he harvested since he was a boy.
So he took a shovel, a donkey or two,
and planted trees (and sidewalks too.)
he build a park, so big and vast
that all the citizens agreed at last
"this shall be our national treasure,
and caring for it shall be our pleasure."
And so, in 1801 a new park was created. Though no one single man has been attributed to the construction of the park, official records do show the land once belonged to a single farmer and his three sons, after his death the land was split amongst them, one got the Hingett section, one the Staarma, and the last the Ialjuva.
at first the park was made into a sports ground.
This is what the park looked like during the first "National Plaza" Effort
Staarma decided to play along with the sports park at first,

Hingett (suburb of Ialjuva) had become the cultural center of the region, later it would house the Supreme Court and Parliament Building, these influenced a much more beautiful park when compared to Staarma's or Ialjuva's

During the first "National Plaza" Effort. The new Parliament house was built on the park.
Original "National Plaza"
Some years later the Tarvastu National Parks and Recreation Council bought the land and started to develop a national project, instead of three separate 'national' parks.
The Project called for the demolition of some sea front buildings, the construction of the new Parliament Building, and a Spire to commemorate the "eternal" Independence
Plans were drawn up and the largest construction project since the metropolitan subway system begun.
In the end the people of Tarvastu were happy with the result: Three cities, One Park. a National Symbol and Landmark.
