Now is the time to defend Beacon Hill

There is no time like the present to come to the aid for Beacon Hill Park.

City seeks public’s thoughts on Beacon Hill changes (News, June 26)

Better than closing just one or two park roads as proposed by the City, replace them all with grass, an oxygen-providing, natural heritage.

Vehicles and roads do nothing for park esthetics.

Glaring ugly rods painted with orange and black stripes to draw attention to the proposed road changes have been installed in concrete, leaving an impression of permanent rather than temporary implants. They might be acceptable downtown, but are unsuitable in Beacon Hill Park.

Beacon Hill Park is finite.

There is no time like the present to come to the aid for Beacon Hill Park.
