Quick re­sponse helps chil­dren en­joy park dur­ing win­ter months

Southwest Booster - - OPINION -

To the ed­i­tor: We would like to send a big thank you to the City Parks and Rec Depart­ment for all they do through­out the year to keep our parks beau­ti­ful and user friendly.

As Day­Care Providers in the city, we have many dif­fer­ent ages of chil­dren in our care and love to fre­quent River­side Park for out­side play time to­gether. Dur­ing nicer weather, we can be found there al­most ev­ery morn­ing and most af­ter- noons en­joy­ing all that River­side Park has to of­fer.

Af­ter a long cold spell and lots of snow, we were not able to fre­quent the park as of­ten as usual. Due to the re­cent warmer tem­per­a­tures, we started to meet up again and were find­ing it very dif­fi­cult to get our day­home ba­bies and tod­dlers through the deep snow.

A cou­ple phone calls to the Parks and Rec Depart­ment later and they had cleared out the South Park­ing Lot and a path to the play­ground which is mak­ing it so much eas­ier for us to get our lit­tle guys and gals to the play­ground equip­ment.

It is great to see how much this City Depart­ment works to help out even our small­est cit­i­zens and for that we def­i­nitely thank you!
