Here's an update, a feet-on-the-ground report.
Wellington Hills Park, owned and managed by Snohomish County ...
1. There are no trash cans in Wellington Hills Park, so litter is accumulating. Beer cans seem popular.
2. Pick-up truck drivers and motorcyclists are enjoying the former golf greens.
3. The former golf greens appears to be mowed by someone wearing a blindfold.
4. It's a Park without park benches.
And, someone, please tell me, what genius thought-up the plan to:
Cut down old trees, dig out and remove the soil, de-water the park and then flatten it ... and when the terraforming is finished to replace the once nice, natural park with giant parking lots, stadium lights, artificial turf fields, commercial buildings and a bunch of other trivial crap ... just so they can make a few bucks?
Can someone answer this ... Do you believe regional governments, when making a choice between "A" and "B", will choose correctly?
You already know the answer to that question.
Anyway, here's a few photos of today at the Park.
