LETTER: Langley City needs downtown dog park

Pretty city deterring crime but encouraging dog walkers to enjoy scenery

Dear Editor,

We would like to commend Langley City for their creative management of crime and homelessness her in our city.

We have seen a big improvement with a lot of the Crime Commission’s study recommendations being implemented.

One new development, though, has now begun to surface. A good percentage of the people who live in our many new apartments have one or two dogs.

Our city is beautifully lit, and the many flower plantings make it a lovely place to walk and enjoy.

Is there any place around St. Joseph’s Square in the downtown area that we could have designated as a much needed “dog park,” along with signage directing to same?

Marie Smith, Langley City
