Evans v. Blankenship

In Evans v. Blankenship, 4 Ariz. 307, 39 P. 812 (1895), the owner of a parcel had recorded a plat on which a parcel was labeled "Public Grounds." Id. at 313, 39 P. at 812. Referring to Archer v. Salinas City, 93 Cal. 43, 28 P. 839 (Cal. 1892), for the principle that the sale of property referring to a plat containing a dedication to the public constitutes acceptance of a common law dedication, the court held that reference to the park in the plat coupled with the owner's sale of parcels referring to the plat constituted a dedication of the park.
