I saw a few updates over the weekend about Recreation Facilities in other cities. As a McLeod Park mom, I think that McLeod Park facilities are an absolute disgrace to the City of Florence. I was embarrasssed when family members from out of town came here and one asked for the restroom?
My answer? ”Here- take my car. There is a gas station on Cashua.”
Yes,iIt is THAT bad. I won’t let my daughter go to the bathroom there. I understand that there are many different places that pull at all of those tax dollars. I certainly see a difference even in some county facilities– the baseball fields at Savannah Grove are much nicer than what we have at McLeod Park.
I understand that there may be more important things. However, I think other cities and counties are able to find ways to fund these efforts. I know that I have to sell coupon books for soccer fundraising– maybe its time this was offered for baseball as well. I know that I’m happy to help find a way — if I felt certain that the money would go to improving the facility itself.
I posted this on facebook a while ago and got a lot of heated answers. What are your thoughts?
