Letter: DeKalb’s Kiwanis Park is an irreplaceable asset
To the Editor:
This letter is in regard to the school board voting on a land swap giving up Kiwanis Park on Fairview Drive for an undeveloped property around the high school. Here is some food for thought from people who have lived on Fairview Drive for 40-plus years: We have seen this property develop from a cornfield to the park that it is today.
This property is more than soccer fields. We see parents bringing their families out to run and play, people walking the new path, people walking their dogs, kids playing baseball and football, picnics under the shelter, wildlife living in the woods – yes, deer, hawks and great horned owls live there – cross country runners, joggers, kites and model airplanes being flown, drum and bugle corps bands practicing, and the list goes on.
