The City's Parks Department has refused to reveal the amount of the donation made in connection with filming last week by 20th Century-Fox in Forest Park. The "significant donation," - said to be $ 5,000 - was made for allowing filming including inside the Park's shuttered historic carousel. Advocates fighting to get the carousel reopened want the funds to be used towards that purpose but parks officials have other plans for it.
