Letter: Lions Park in heart of Penticton is a treasure

Neighbour to Lions Park wants to thank Lions Club for such a beautiful park

Editor:

I have been procrastinating about writing this thank-you letter for the past four and one-half years when I first moved into Athen’s Creek Lodge. I sincerely want to thank, the Lions Club and the city for its upkeep. I am talking about our lovely little Lions Community Park, right in the centre of our town.

I am fortunate to have many window views of all the green shades and now prolific dandelion yellows, which will soon be puff balls. The children’s park is always delightful when small children come to climb, slide and swing.

Many of of the residents use the pathway for a daily outing and benches to visit with friends. The baseball fields and players are so much fun to watch too. Deer also enjoy the natural parkland and what is left of nature and the stream which is indeed, Athens Creek. Resident owls are often spotted too.

I understand the Lions Club is now more of a social club, but please know your efforts from years back will always be appreciated. Thank you again.

(Lions Park is located on Warren Avenue West past Cherry Lane mall. It has a walking trail, park benches and playground and is attached to baseball diamonds.)
