Swing low…

Swing set needs adjusted to accommodate a wider range of fun seekers.

Dear editor,

I would just like to say that I am greatly disappointed with the work that has been done at Carrot Park.

The swingset got quite a makeover, but someone should have informed whoever was “fixing” it that not everybody is two feet tall. People shouldn’t wonder why the chains are swung over to bring the swings higher and they shouldn’t try to pull them down either. The kind of kids who are the right size to use these swings are more interested in the texture of the grass at this age.

Personally, I’ve never been able to get the swings over the bar but I am tired of having my knees to my chin when trying to sit on one of these new swings. Parks should be appropriate for kids of all ages, even the kids at heart.

I hope this letter encourages someone to fix the swingset and do it right this time.

Sincerely,

Sara Poirier

Port Hardy
