"Yes, it's very important for children during their childhood. It keeps kids out of trouble."
"There's lots of space at Greer Park. ... I think what we really need is a good dog park."

"Palo Alto does not need new parks. I have a family member who works for the City of Palo Alto and he tells me how they waste money. ... We have (Martin Luther King) Park and they never use it."
"I think Palo Alto could use more playing fields because of all the teams that utilize the green spaces. It's hard to accommodate all of them, whether it's soccer practices, lacrosse and all the other sports."
