Reader Doesn't Want to Lose Park

To the editor:

This letter is in answer to the article I just read in the Dec. 12 issue of the Sun-Current in regard to teh study for a golf course where Patrick Eagan Park is now. What on earth is wrong with people who want to ruin the last natural park area in Eagan and instead "develop" the area with a PGA-type golf course and million dollar homes? There are two things wrong with that plan: First, there will no longer be a beautiful park; second, who can afford to golf on that kind of course? It will be out of range in cost to the majority of golfers.

There are many courses in this area where people who enjoy golf can play, but there are no more areas that are natural and that people can enjoy without any cost financially.

I happen to be a golfer and also an environmentalist, so I can see both sides of the picture. So, please, let's not ruin what little natural park space is left. We don't need one more golf course. Particularly when we need more housing for low-income families.

E. Evans
