To the Editor:

Through the years, I’ve watched kids play beside the bandstand at the Arts Festival or strolled around classic cars or watched families picnicking on the grass as they listened to music on summer evenings and thought how Swanny Park was Moab at its finest; warm and welcoming.

Now it seems that a few people who live near the park, which I assume predates their arrival, have a problem with it being so, well . . . public.

How ironic that it seems the summer concert series – a few hours of music on four summer evenings – seems to be the straw that broke the camel’s back of entitlement.
