Killeen reader offers humorous view on city’s new downtown pocket park

Posted

To the Editor:

I can’t tell you how relieved I am that Killeen’s City Council is finally getting around to building a pocket park, and downtown to boot!

You wouldn’t believe how many times I have said to my wife, “If Killeen just had a pocket park, I would actually go downtown!”

You can’t imagine the thrill going up my leg just thinking about it.

My heart was originally set on a butterfly garden. But secretly I had held on to all hope against hope for a pocket park. Dreams do come true!

While I am optimistic that patrons will drive to downtown Killeen from all corners of Bell County and fill the park with nature lovers and children playing and intellectuals hunkered over concrete chessboards, I suspect the real motivation is to provide a place where nobody will see councilmen meeting with traffic light photo enforcement executives and recycling moguls.

Still dreaming,

Kurt Diederich

Killeen
