Letters: No complaint about dog park planners and politicians

Dear Editor,

We Langley folk do a lot of complaining about many things, some legitimate and some dubious.

Instead of a complaint, this time I should like to praise the City of Langley, the planners and politicians who made a dog park a fact, and the work crews who make so many people and their dogs happy and healthy.

I am writing about the Langley Dog Park.

What a blessing that place is, and the joy it brings to so many animals and humans is astounding.

The area (in my memory, once a dump) is an outstanding piece of land, well planted with young trees and carefully maintained by a pleasant workforce.

Lately, the once rutted road and parking area has been paved, which is a delight.

This area, more than any other place in Langley, I believe, brings together the love of dogs and humans in an atmosphere of wellbeing and enjoyment.

To all responsible for the Langley Dog Park off 44th Avenue, we say, “Bless you. Thank you, and many sincere woof woofs.”

Mike Harvey, Langley
