Development photo misleading

Dear Editor:

Has anyone noticed that the picture of the development at Skaha Lake Park was taken from the south from above, focusing on the marina and a large, paved parking lot, and that the beautiful, grassy and treed park was hardly noticeable?

Well I thought in the beginning that that was it.

Now that we know that all the beautiful park is part of this development and will be replaced by a large parking area for boat trailers, waterslide and the relocation of the boat house.

I would like someone with a scissor lift and camera to take a picture from the north side and publish it in the newspaper. This may help those people of Penticton who have not seen the beauty of this park realize just what we are about to lose if this project goes through.
