Letter: Let’s not add a “mall” to Riverside Park


Many Kamloops residents enjoy the grassy and treed parks around our city.

People of all ages go there to renew themselves from the daily hustle and bustle of responsibilities.

Others have taken a broader meaning to “parks.” They enjoy water parks, amusement parks, bicycle parks, RV parks, dog parks, car parks, ball parks, industrial parks, skateboard parks, etc.

To those who want to add a “mall park” to the list in the form of a public market, I say, “Build it if you must, but somewhere else. Let those of us who want it green and peaceful keep our Riverside Park as is. Let Riverside Park continue to exist as a green and growing space of urban nature.”

Let’s not permit another inch of concrete — not up, across, down or under our beloved Riverside Park.

To those who want malls, give them a map and help them get to the 10-plus mall parks already in our city 

Don’t park a mall in our park.
