Wagner Park travesty

When will the people of Aspen be able to use Wagner Park in the spring? The park is in immaculate condition right now and remains closed to the public.

This is a travesty. The only time the park should be closed to the public is during actual events and during mud season, which is long gone.

The city has done an amazing job getting the park ready as they usually do. However, it seems all this effort is for the Food and Wine festival and not for everyday park users.

The city fails to bring the park back to immaculate condition after the Food and Wine, another travesty. I call for the new City Council to protect the city’s parks for the people who use them, not the festivals that exploit them.
