LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Parkland purchases are money well-spent

Park users today benefit from past parkland creation, notes letter writer

To the editor,

Re: Parkland purchase shows that region needs to better control its spending, Letters, March 16.

This is in reply to the letter writer who complains about the RDN spending money on a park which he may never visit.

If the RDN followed that sort of advice we would never have many of our public facilities which enrich our community. Does he not realize that he likely uses facilities approved and paid for for taxpayers in the past? He should thank them for their foresight, and rethink his own opposition to a park which will benefit current and future generations.
