Marysville bench lands

What do we want with the bench ? We want a park, the Marysville Bench Park! We want it for all the community to use for years and decades to come, we want to save and save this beauty. But it is more then that, it is flat and can be used for seniors and disabled or injuries , I see them walking it all the time, and that will included all of us some day. Plus it is open and most women prefer to walk in open spaces for the feeling of safety. It has been used for 50 years or more some say 100 years. This area, Marysville or south Kim, whatever u want to label it, like it or not , doesn't have one and that isn't ok, Council Goodwin , Kitto and Oakley should understand what that means to us, more then anyone. It is our nature park, we use it daily, it is our Marysville Nature Park, small , yes but we don't complain about that, we just want it left alone, protected, natural, so it can be used for another 100 yrs of recreational usage. We don't want to walk around fences, paving, metal buildings, noise, trucks, gas smells, who in kimberley does? That is not us, any of us, or we wouldn't want to live here. I think most of Kimberley Residents understand this need.
