Re the letter, May 1, about the new Diamond Lakes Regional Park in south Augusta. I have lived in south Augusta for 35 years. We have been the red-headed stepchild in sports facilities in the past. We have Fleming complex for softball.
I did not gripe about gas and wear and tear on my vehicle when I had to drive to Patriots Park, Blanchard Park and Eisenhower Complex. Those are great complexes, but now the Diamond Lakes Complex has opened.
We now have the premier sports complex for adult softball and youth baseball.
So tell the griper to come see me for gas money when he needs to come to Diamond Lakes Regional Park. I open the park at 7 a.m. and close at sunset on the weekends.
