Re. “BMXers slam vote to level bike park” (front page, The Tri-City News, Nov. 28).
I am not a BMX rider and I enjoy the festival events held at Town Centre Park but I was saddened to learn of the decision to close the BMX park to expand the festival area.
Society is struggling to engage young people in our democratic processes and is also struggling to find ways to encourage them to get away from computers and phones and do something active, healthy and outdoors.
Shutting down the park without consultation or a clear alternative plan sends the wrong message on both fronts.
