118. It;'s a privately owned park, but for the use of the public.
Don't know if it happened in this case, but sometimes cities will make deals with developers, as in

"Okay, you don't have to build a parking garage with two spaces for each dwelling unit, PROVIDED, you include six units of low income housing and dedicate some space to a park for use of the general public--no, no, we don't want to own the park. We want YOU to maintain it and pay real estate taxes on it."
