LETTER: Sharp rebuke
I took my grandchildren, aged two and four, to Mountain View Park in Ladner Sunday morning and I was appalled by what I found in the park.
Someone had been drinking there and left beer bottles and a wine bottle littering the grass. That was not what bothered me as they were easy enough to pick up and put into the trash. What really bothered me is that someone threw a vodka bottle at the playground equipment, shattering glass all over the equipment and the ground around it.
I did not want my grandchildren or any other children cutting themselves so I spent about half an hour picking up the tiny pieces of glass out of the mulch.
I understand young adults want to have a good time and celebrate at the end of the school year. I know I did it when it was younger, but please think about the innocent little children that play in the park. Some day it could be your own children or grandchildren that find glass in the playground.
