My husband and I live in Parker Farm Estates, which is located across from the new park. The traffic and noise directly impacts the residents living here. I guess no one thought to measure the sound decibels in the planning stages of this very lovely park. At the opening event, the excellent band was so unbelievably loud, you could not hear your own voice. I welcome all those involved to come and sit on my porch on a Saturday or Sunday morning and try to have a normal conversation during game time.
It is impossible with the music of "We Will Rock You" and the inspirational theme from "Rocky" at full blast, horns blowing, cowbells ringing and the screaming enthusiasm of barking spectators, cheerleaders and players alike. Keep in mind this starts at 9 a.m., and continues throughout the day and night, until the field lights finally go off at 9 p.m. The noise level is deafening, an assault on the senses, not unlike the torture tactics of war....by the end of the day, I have repeated my name and social security number a thousand times.
