Letter: Gardens were better than grey

Now that the Kew Gardens restoration is over, I feel the need to comment.

We have lost two lovely garden beds which welcomed us to the rest of the park. In its place we have gray concrete pavers and an eyesore black matte arch which impedes any view of the park from Queen Street.

It is a cold unwelcoming, unneeded expense and is no improvement on what was there in the first place.

The new space is mediocre, a total waste of resources. And it isn’t even finished yet over a year since construction started. Using stones/gravel was a horrible mistake as the stones are migrating to adjacent areas in significant quantities. The street people like it though for drinking their Old Milwaukee and Listerine.
