Suggestions for Station/Craig street park

To City of Duncan mayor and council:

First, let me question why you hired someone from the United States of America to tell us how to design our parks at Station/Craig Street and Whistler?

As for your request for input, may I suggest:

1. A mural on the wall when we can afford it (Craig Street)

2. Trees; what is a park without shade trees?

3. Flowering shrubs, maybe a bed of permanent flowers

4. More benches and tables

5. Also, please put the Rick Hansen totem in the Station Street park, where it can be seen. He is a Canadian icon, know the world over

6. Black plastic with astro turf

7. Summer students can water and weed the flowers

I went down Whister Street to see just where you planned to put a park. No vacant land — we already have several pars for our homeless people, why create another? Surely we can put our tax money to better use.
