Robin Sutherland stated, “We don’t need more parks.” I couldn’t disagree more.

As the child of a single working mother, I spent pre-teen summers tearing around Barrington Playground, an LA. park. We played caroms and baseball, learned gymnastics and basketry. We binged on wild urban blackberries and napped en mass in humid, grassy shade.

But mostly we played fearsome two-“man”, indoor volleyball, where I learned a mean overhand serve which continues to befuddle opponents 40 years later.

Kids do need parks. And we need a supervisor who understands the needs of our children. Vote for Izzy Martin, 4th District supervisor.
