LETTER: Park improvements worthy of ‘thank you’


Editor: Stewart McKeough and those who carried out his wishes deserve a big “thank you” for all the improvements which have been made to McKeough Park on Grand Avenue.

I admire it every time I drive by.

I have many memories of living and growing up in an apartment in the area. My two brothers and I spent many hours playing in that park. It had everything a child at that time could imagine – a wading pool, a much larger pool including a diving board, swimming lessons, swings for toddlers, swings for the older children, slide, teeter-totters and sand box.

Very few children have lived in the area for a long time and its use as just a playground has not been needed.

Of course, many of the items we enjoyed (and survived) back then would not pass safety regulations. But now it will attract young and old alike – rocks, flowers and trees.
