Should cemetery on Sunol be a green park?

Seems to me that if the Odd Fellows never collected enough money to install lawns, or maintain the cemetery as a park, City taxpayers shouldn't pay to make this place as green and nice as our sports fields, just so that the few times a year family members visit graves, they get the fancy lawn look. If families wanted the fancy lawn look, they should have paid the $30k+ that those plots cost, and not the $2k that the Odd Fellows charged.
BTW - I don't have any family buried there; and told my own kids to cremate me when it is my time.
