Letter: Work effort by city parks crews disgusting

For goodness sake, turn up and complete the park before the summer is over.

To the editor:

We have now watched the inactivity at the Mission Creek Park’s playground since September 2012 which was closed down to revitalize it. It is unbearable watching the work ethics across the road.

The park was closed down September 2012 and is still not opened. Last fall they moved earth around for weeks but not every day.  A couple of men would show up and work a little, next thing they are gone. Next day maybe one fellow would show up.

Now, days go by until there is another pretence to work by a couple of men. Two more men show up, stand around, wave their arms and leave. This method of working went on until about Christmas, then nothing—still nothing.

Easter, a beautiful day when many families showed up at the park but no playground for the children.

There was an event with many children on April 7, but no playground for the children.

Still haven’t seen any work done.

What are they waiting for? Another year to go by?

If they would only send out a crew of workers they would have it done in no time.

The other thing is the equipment—who decided that? They have a rope construction to climb that could hang a child.

Eight swings were replaced by four when the swings were the most popular. Children lined up for a turn on the swings. Now there’s a big space with nothing in it.

For goodness sake, turn up and complete the park before the summer is over.

Disgusted.
