More open space, please

Dear Editor:
As a teenager who is involved in many sports that require open space, it is very upsetting and frustrating to not have many clear open fields.
There have been many cases where the fields are either occupied by city events or by a volley ball league. It is hard to understand why the city doesn’t do more to use the fields they have, such as the field on 4th and Jackson. That field is hardly ever used and could free up a lot of space for people who just want to kick a ball around.
There are many things that the city could attempt to do that could make things much easier for everyone who uses public fields. I just hope that they try and do some of them.
