I would like to thank the WaterShed Animal Fund of the Oklahoma City-based Arnall Family Foundation for having the foresight, true caring and concern for animal welfare to donate $715,000 for the benefit of animals ("Coalition for Tulsa Pets gifted $715,000 to support city's effort to become a no-kill shelter," June 7).
In reflection, which sometimes can be a good teacher, the $465 million for a centralized park along the River Parks could have gone a long way toward flood plights, teacher plights and delightfully updating our already conveniently placed neighborhood park lands throughout our city.
Hopefully, as the city spreads, perhaps more open land can be preserved within neighborhood planning.
Future families can continue to benefit from the convenience of enjoying outdoors with a neighborhood community park as well.
