Shaw Park drying out

[This letter was sent to Bert Whitaker of the Sonoma County Regional Parks Department on July 16, 2019 – reprinted with permission.]

Dear Bert,

I hope all is well. The last you heard from me is when I congratulated you on how nice Shaw Park in Kenwood looked. But something has gone wrong. The park has been browned out from lack of water. I suggest that someone look at it and do double time to get it back to being green. If the sprinklers were to go on at 11 p.m. and then again at 5 a.m. it might come back. This way it won’t evaporate into the heat. Maybe postponing the dog park because of urine burns. I think you get my point. I sure hope you’ll work with us in Kenwood. We value Shaw Park.

Thank you,
Cathy Fletcher
