City Park not the right place to consider a recreation center

May 1, 2013 - Kerri Hitchenberk, Riverton

Editor:

Some people are suggesting building a big recreation center in Riverton City Park? There are lots of other places to build it that wouldn't take away City Park.

Do they know how big a recreation center is? All the trees would have to be cut down, for one thing. The park would be ruined.

I don't think this town can ever get it together and build a recreation center, no matter where it is put. But City Park is not the right place to do it. We should have a city park and a rec center, rather than just one or the other.
