Letter: Look to McArthur Island for public market

Re: (‘Public market boosters selling memberships,’ Nov. 23):

I feel it would be a shame to turn part of Riverside Park into a public market.

Riverside is the crown jewel of our city and to put a market there would take away from the beauty of the park.

We don’t need to bring the market to the people.

The people who want to go to a public market will go, no matter where it is.

Someone mentioned the former golf course on McArthur Island and that would be a perfect spot and a great addition to that area as it is not used as much and will bring people there.

People attending sports events could check out the market and even buy lunch there.

To turn part of Riverside Park into a public market would create an eyesore.
