Letter to the Editor: Most excited about the splash pads

Friday, October 11, 2019

To the Editor:

I am writing in support of Proposition 1. The park improvements included in the bond measure are important to consider when deciding how to vote. Shoreline parks are a source of pride in our community. The proposed upgrades will bring needed improvements.

The feature I'm most excited about are the splash pads! I currently take our 2 year old grandson Lucca to Edmonds to enjoy their splash park and boy does he have a ball. I'd rather take him to a Shoreline park. I support Shoreline businesses, frequent Shoreline restaurants, and support my community whenever I can. I feel the same way about our parks.

I was a member of the Shoreline Parks Funding Advisory Committee. Our group felt strongly that park improvements should be part of this bond measure. The Shoreline park system is an essential service that provides quality of life, enhances our community, increases property values and promotes healthy living through physical activity. Like any asset, it requires periodic investments to maintain.

The joy of child in play at a park is hard to beat. The excitement of discovering new adventures through swings, slides and splash pads is contagious. Adults love the trails and trees. Let's make that available to everyone in our community through a fully accessible play area at Richmond Highlands.

Please vote yes on Shoreline Proposition 1.

There should have been a separate parks levy, and not jammed in with the aquatics facility. This was a blatant attempt to get people to vote for the aquatics facility. IT IS TOO EXPENSIVE WITH TOO LITTLE GOING TO PARKS!
