Letter: More green space, not less

The heat dome showed us the huge value of the cooling effect of parks

More green space, not less

The proposed plans for a six storey apartment building on a portion of Centennial Park are very unsettling and unwise. This is truly a family park with its playground, garden plots, tennis court and beautiful trees….a delightful green retreat in our small city.

The heat dome showed us the huge value of the cooling effect of parks, trees and green space and protects us against the “urban heat island effect” caused by densification. We need more greenspace, not less. Support green space preservation!
