I noticed while walking around the expensively cared for, fenced and seldom used ball field at Holly Park I was walking in soaking wet grass, due to, of course, the ball field having been well watered.
Consuming this unnecessary vast amount of water for a ball field during these extremely dry drought conditions that are getting worse not better, when everyone has been asked to cut down on their water use, is absolutely unconscionable and shameful from a city government that appears difficult to shame.
Why should people cut down on their personal water use when this sort of stupidity from the city continues? Feels like a huge slap in the face to Joe Public. If the City of Surrey expects people to cut back their water consumption due to drought conditions and a very low water supply, they desperately need to start setting an example of what exactly this looks like.
