Letters: Save the Minoru benches

A Richmond News reader wants the city to consider saving the benches outside the old Minoru pool
Minoru Aquatic Centre

Dear Editor,

The old Minoru Aquatic Centre’s demolition is imminent. It’s reported “city staff say they can reuse some of the material in other projects in Richmond.”

I fervently hope this applies to the outdoor benches, which are in perfectly good shape. There are five in front of the centre and three more to the left (plus one in front of the Arena and 16 in front of the library).

Any or all of these could be relocated, for instance, on the trails at the Garden City Lands.
