In a recent letter to the editor titled “Einstein Park needs city attention,” Jeanne Larson (Nov. 22) expressed her concerns with the way the park is seemingly being neglected by the city.
I do understand that we are in a drought, and watering parks is not a high priority. But it seems that the parks south of Shaw Avenue are neglected compared to the parks on the north side of town.
A pocket park next to my house, called Tollhouse Park, was not being watered during the summer. Signs were placed on the park that called it an “island medium,” and it was only after a tree started to die that the city started to water the trees with a watering truck.
Yet parks on the north side of town seem to be doing fine.
The article “City leaders outline plans to revitalize Fresno parks, add two new ones” on abc30.com, states the city of Fresno plans to allocate $4.6 million toward renovating existing parks. But the city’s current actions toward its parks seems to contradict with what they want to see happen.
