22 things I would rather have in Victoria Park

There is a project proposed to put 22 statues of the Canadian prime ministers around the Green in Victoria Park- Kitchener. I would like to propose 22 things that I would rather see.

  1. 22 rare Canadian flora introduced to the park
  2. 22 musicians, paid year round to serenade the park with the blues
  3. 22 stone cairns – designed by artists, chosen through a competition – to commemorate great Canadian accomplishments
  4. 22 dancers – they would compliment the physical activity in the Green
  5. 22 picnic blankets – free to use for those who want to stop for a bite
  6. 22 everlasting fires… take a hint from Parliament Hill
  7. 22 small hills – a neat wave pattern and fun for running
  8. 22 chairs in the shape of geese. At least they don’t poop
  9. 22 obstacles for dogs
  10. 22 bird houses
  11. 22 bird feeders
  12. 22 chess boards
  13. 22 picnic tables
  14. 22 new gardens scattered about the park
  15. 22 statues of dogs (from my son Alex)
  16. 22 trees (from my son Liam)
  17. 22 Canadian red cattle – the only breed of cattle that are Canadian – a bronze herd
  18. 22 commemorations of extinct Canadian species
  19. 22 installations of modern contemporary art – all around the park
  20. 22 typewriters to write messages to the future
  21. 22 theatrical performances throughout the year
  22. 22 fruit trees – a sharing of bounty at harvest

What would you rather see?
