LETTER: Keep spray park in Polson

I read with sadness of the imminent closure of the Spray Park in Polson Park.

It is a heavily-used free, amenity for families who live close to the park during our hot summers.

I know there is a discussion of putting one up in East Hill, but this is not an easily walkable place to get too, for people who live downtown.

It has long been a useful, fun feature of the park. I really hope that council considers putting a spray park back into Polson Park.

We need families to still come and enjoy the park, and hang out on hot days there.

I am writing to council to express my wish, and hope that others do the same.
