Enjoyed background on park
I am reaching out to say how much I enjoyed seeing Mr. Miller's article in the Jan. 25 issue about the community gathering at Leigh Creekside Park.
I found his description of the history of the park's creation very meaningful. And with all the strong opinions about the park's future, Mr. Miller kept the tone of the article respectful to all parties. I have at times thought the community needs a mediator to solve the debate. Someone may have to concede on this issue, but finding positive regard for one another during a disagreement is worth it.
The article was a helpful read. We'll be staying tuned! Many thanks.
Let Leigh Creekside Park Be
I want to thank John T. Miller for his even handed article on the Future of Leigh Creekside Park. As an original donor to the Park, I strongly feel this open space provides plenty of room for our young children to play and experience nature, our teenagers to find solace and peace from the pressures of society, our elderly to find a quite interlude with
friends, and our creek animals to find relief from the ever circling confines of development. Please let it be.
Residents Enjoyed Afternoon in Leigh Creekside Park
I would like to thank John T. Miller for his article, "City Council to Decide Future of Leigh Creekside Park," which appeared in the Jan. 25, 2017 issue of the Lamorinda Weekly. The community event hosted by the Coalition to Save Leigh Creekside Park was a delightful afternoon, demonstrating how the park can be enjoyed by a multitude of people without the addition of play structures. Up to 100 people of all ages attended, including young children, Girl Scouts, middle school-aged kids, adults and senior citizens. Thank you also to the Leigh Creekside Park "Let it Be!" group for such a lovely afternoon in Lafayette's only completely natural, open space park!
