Park gets thumbs up


I enjoyed reading a good summary from Sharon Barovsky of the whys and hows of Legacy Park’s creation. I’m thrilled that we have open space instead of commercial development in the old “Chile Cook-Off” site. What an accomplishment to keep all the divergent forces in this city together long enough that something really worthwhile could be created.

In addition, we are cleaning up the surface water runoff into Malibu Lagoon. We live in a Mediterranean climate, like it or not. It is generally accepted that the Mediterranean climate is a bit dry and deserty. It appears that many of the plants in Legacy Park were designed to thrive in our climate. Green grass, gorgeous trees, and typical park plants need much water and care. Legacy Park complements our climate and environment. I love this park and all of you who worked on it deserve that gold medal!
