Hi Sir/Madam , I'm writing
letter after
Verb problem

about the closure of the children's playground ,
, I understand
decision is
due to
the building materials thrown between the playground and the newly constructed building but, that does not mean there are no alternative solutions for that matter, I hope will decision will be changed for opening it again. As it is the only place that people in the neighbourhood have for their kids to play and have some cheerful times , it does not make sense closing it now ,especially summer holidays going to end just
month so, taking
joy from them is really a disgrace. Children are in love with
service because of the wide range of activities that presents for them,
, there are no near alternatives for them that they can count on. Eventually, I would suggest as a solution at least opening the park in the afternoons, at least there are no workers at that time so no worries about them or, equipment for the construction could be transferred to another place. With best regards, Yousif.
