Clean up after yourselves at park

Imagine my disgust when I drove into Lions Park to walk my dog on Wednesday morning, March 21 and saw the plethora of soda and beer cans, plastic bottles and other garbage surrounding the basketball court.

What is the matter with people? There are recycle and garbage bins around the park yet this stuff is left lying around — not only in the basketball area but also at the skateboard park, the playground areas and the Frisbee golf areas, only to blow into the pond area.

Also people, please pick up after your dogs whether they’re big or small! Remember, families use this park and wildlife lives there. Please do your part to keep it clean! — Gail Gale, Elk River
