It’s a sad fact that our parks are starting to suffer from neglect. Just a few examples:

  • The safety of our parks has been eroded by crime, graffiti and illegal camping
  • Because we have no dedicated soccer fields, many of our grass areas are being damaged by improper use
  • The recently renovated pool at Verdugo Park is already becoming dingy and rundown

It takes leadership to confront these issues and maintain our scarce open spaces. The current council majority is letting this one slip through their fingers.
