I wrote a letter to councillor Perks and our parks supervisor to inquire about 9 items where I felt the park could be improved. Peter White replied with the following email referencing 2 of my suggestions. The text is below:
Thank you for your email regarding Ritchie Parkette. I enjoyed meeting with you back in July and look forward to working with your group to facilitate improvements in the park. I am able to comment on a couple of your questions.
I have contacted Parks Construction to take a look at the pergola and determine wether it is safe and what would be involved in removing it.
I will request that the replacement of the playground sand be included in the 2012 Minor Capital budget. In the mean time I will see if there is anything we can do with the existing sand to improve the conditions.
If you do locate wasp nests in the park, please let me know and I can have them removed.
Thanks again for your interest in Ritchie Parkette. Please feel free to contact me if you require anything further.
