Letter: Don't shy away from great Colvill Park

To the Editor:

Road and bridge construction near Colvill Park may look kind of daunting; but Colvill Park is open, as usual, this summer for all of your family fun activities.

The pool, the Universal Playground, the marinas, the boat ramps and all of the buildings like the Colvill Courtyard and the pavilions are all beckoning the usual visitors and picnickers to come on down to the park.

There is no better place than Colvill Park for summer gatherings like family reunions or community celebrations like “Ribs & Bibs” scheduled for June 22. The pool and the playground are great destinations for the whole family and are open all summer long.

There is some special one-way traffic control coming into the park from West Seventh Street due to construction, but a little patience should get you into and out of the park just fine.

I hope to see everybody at one of the most beautiful parks on the Mississippi River, Colvill Park, this summer.
