To the Mayor and council members of Santa Clara,
We are writing to implore you to not convert Jenny Strand Park into a soccer facility.
This local park is important to our neighborhood and to have it taken over is not only unfair but it also deprives us of a peaceful, tranquil place for neighbors to walk and children to play. There are other city park areas that are more suitable for proposed youth soccer activities: Central Park or Wilcox or Santa Clara High schools.
Many of us residents did not approve of the 49ers’ stadium in Santa Clara, and feel indignant for it to potentially affect our neighborhood near Jenny Strand Park, which is far removed from the stadium.
We strongly urge that Jenny Strand Park not be used Santa Clara Youth Soccer league activities.
