Choice between overgrown grass and families having fun

HHA board I served on the Hollywood Hill Association as a board member for three years, when my children were very young. Now that they are in elementary school, I am too busy to be active in the association.
    However, I am very disappointed to find out that the present board is out of touch with the needs of my family, by not fully supporting the South Gateway Community Park.
    We need many more opportunities for active recreation and family activities and parks in the Woodinville area. Putting soccer fields on the fallow land next to the city will require little more than cutting the grass that is already there.
    What would you rather see, overgrown grass or families having fun? Both have about equal impact on the precious soils.
