Letter: Don’t destroy the park

Bike skills park would destroy John Phillips Memorial Park says letter writer

I am very dismayed at the planned destruction of John Phillips Memorial Park. The Sooke Bike club has proposed a Bike Skills Park.  I have seen websites for parks built by the same developer Alpine Bike Club. They will take this beautiful green space and replace it with piles of dirt and rocks. Not at all like the pretty artist’s rendition they presented.

Are we not supposed to be saving our green spaces? Protecting our parks? Protecting our environment?  I am not opposed to the idea of having a bike park in Sooke,  I am opposed to destroying a jewel in the centre of our town.

The only way to stop them is to write letters to the mayor and town council in opposition.

Please help save our park.
