I spend a lot of time in the parks and I have noticed there is lots of garbage. If we don’t take care of our parks, they won’t be as pretty and people won’t use them. I think there are things we can do to solve this problem. First, we should put more garbage cans around, especially where people gather. An example is Stevenson Skate Park. Second, we should put up signs that say “Don’t litter.” And finally, people should be respectful and not litter. If we do all of these things our parks would look prettier.
