A couple windstorms over the last year had decimated a thick stand of old cottonwood trees near one of our city parks. And so the local park department spent a ton of time over the summer clearing the damage out and leveling the area, leaving a huge open area that basically doubled the size of the open area in this little park. I was excited to see what they were going to do with the area to serve the community.
And what’d they do with it? Took half of it and put in a ugly ass tractor pull track with stands that will get used, literally, one weekend of the year for the annual county fair.
What an absolute waste.
