Keep former Griffith golf course as a sanctuary

Has anyone counted all the different trees on the Griffith golf course? Every time I drive by it looks better now than it ever did.

How can we keep it as part of our park system — local, county, state, federal, whichever one works? Think of all of the progress being done along the river and with the changes to the area because of Cline Avenue and the Borman Expressway. Leave it alone and put some walking paths through there.

The northeast corner of Cline and the Borman, the southeast corner, both going east to the railroad tracks and what’s left of the southwest side of the river should be allowed to stay with nature for everyone to enjoy.

Please do not turn the golf course into a parking lot and another bar, restaurant or store that will fail in a few years and we're back to junk. Use vacant or dilapidated buildings already in town.

Let everyone enjoy this bit of sanctuary.
