Park being trashed

Garbage strewn across Kings Park following a recent sports meet

There was a sports meeting at Kings Park on a recent Saturday; some activity took place there on Sunday also.

When I walked from my house nearby to mail a letter on Monday morning I had to walk through fast food containers, styrofoam cups and plates, even a plastic grocery bag full of garbage strewn along Moosejaw on the grass verge alongside Kings Park.

People competing in and watching these sports must have come in cars. It would have been civic minded of these sports people to take their garbage home with them if they could not find a garbage can.

Are there no garbage cans in the park? Maybe a garbage can should be put on this grass verge also to prevent this unsightly mess happening again.
