Lorne Gunter sure knows how to throw cold water on a positive, progressive idea of a green space in downtown Edmonton. Warehouse Park would be a beautiful green oasis in a concrete jungle, but Gunter thinks it would not live up to its grandiose city sales pitch. Really? Consider if New York City decided to eliminate Central Park and designate it for residential and/or commercial development. The public, especially nearby residents and workers, would be up in arms and never allow it and would be a huge loss of prestige and tourist draw for NYC. Gunter stated that Warehouse Park would be a draw for the homeless and, God forbid, activists! Enough of his fearmongering and negativity for a park that will surely be a welcome retreat for many downtown workers, visitors and residents. And no, they should not call it ‘Parking Lot Park’, Gunter. Now I’ll go to a city park and enjoy the spring greenery and listen to the songbirds. It’s quite enjoyable, relaxing and good for the spirit. Thank-you to our city council for this project that will be enjoyed by many for years to come. Read More
