Regarding the Oct. 19 photo on Boulevard Park, this work is not a restoration or a return to a natural state. Boulevard Park is almost totally built on fill, so there was no natural land in the area being worked on to be "restored."
Since restoration could not have been the objective, why was a large part of the lawn area destroyed? Don't tell me about erosion. Surely the large pieces of concrete that lined the shore before were adequately resistant to erosion, more so than the sand, gravel and small stones that have replaced them.
