    Section 5. The Park Commissioners Land Sale Act is amended

    Sec. 1. Any board of park commissioners having the control
or supervision of any public park, boulevard, driveway or
highway, and having any piece or parcel of land not exceeding 3
acres in area, which shall no longer be needed or deemed
necessary or useful for the purpose of said park, boulevard,
driveway or highway may apply to the Circuit Court of the
county in which such piece or parcel of land is situated, by
petition in writing for leave to sell the same. Notice of such
application shall be given by said board of park commissioners
in some newspaper published in said county at least ten days
before the day of the hearing on such application named
therein, when said application will be made. All persons
interested may appear before said Circuit Court either in
person or by attorney at the hearing on such when said
application shall be made, and object to the granting thereof.
After hearing all persons interested, if said court shall deem
the granting of said application to be for the public interest,
it shall direct that the property mentioned in said
application, or any part thereof, be sold and conveyed by the
said board of park commissioners for the use of said park,
boulevard, driveway or highway, upon such terms and conditions
as the said court may think proper.
