McAdam Park a unique natural spot

I totally agree with the letter from D. Sieja in the Dec. 14 Citizen.

McAdam Park is a wonderful wilderness area we can walk to and around easily and safely, and to think of it being changed from its present delightful ambience makes me feel sad. I love to photograph the reflections of trees in puddles, watch dogs swimming and kids building dams in the summer lagoon, and see dogs chase after balls without the constraints of a smelly, fenced, too small, dog park. I do hope the natural abundance of wildness, accessible to all as it is right now, will not be tamed and ruined. There are no other really natural, level, places some of us can get to.
