Growing up in the ‘80s and ‘90s, there was one thing I could always count on: the mall.

When I was bored, I’d go to the mall and peruse shelves of music, books and gadgets. I could window shop and dream about becoming an attorney dressed in Escada. (At least half of that is correct; I’m an attorney in whatever was on sale at Macy’s.)

Our parks are a gift, La Mesa, and the sooner you realize it, the better it will be for your families and pocketbooks.

As a parent who lives in this fine city, I can’t get enough of our free spaces. My son, a 2 year old who sometimes seems as though he could have inspired the character of Damian from “The Omen,” loves to run around the grassy areas and watch his big sister happily climb the jungle gyms and swing from the bars.
