For our family, the parks are an extension of our small home. The parks are how we deal with the struggles of living in Vancouver but we compete with other families for scarce resources (swim lessons, lifeguards, playgrounds, programs and options). Let's give more, support more and be more for all of us through our parks so we can live cooperatively and share in our city together.
