Saint Edwards State Park proposal would turn a peaceful park into a chaotic scene | Letter

My name is Keith Larkin, I am 13 and live in Snohomish County and I would like to voice my opinion on the Kenmore City Hall proposal of the new ball field at Saint Edwards State Park. Although I live in Snohomish County I have spent many hours of hiking, swimming, and playing Frisbee at one of my favorite spots on Lake Washington. I have played on the baseball field many times before and I think the $4.91 million baseball field would make the peaceful park into a chaotic scene. I think it would be almost impossible to get in and out of the parking areas because the field would cause many more vehicles to congest the roads in and out of the park. The turf field in my opinion would be a big waste of taxpayer money. I personally do not like playing on a turf field because it feels uncomfortable to have turf in or on your clothes. I think the City of Kenmore should try to preserve the memorable park instead of tearing it down and rebuilding it.
