I'm not a fan of higher taxes, but updating and maintaining our parks is crucial.

To save money and reduce emissions of greenhouse gases, I like to avoid driving my car unless I have to. For me to make a special trip to walk in a park, it has to be a fairly wonderful park.
I tend to relieve stress by walking to the grocery store and carrying my stuff home in a backpack. I try not to use my car on weekends.
I think global warming has to be taken seriously. Biking to a park, great. Driving to a park? I try to avoid it.
I can't recall the last time I've been to a county park. I expect I will vote no on this measure.

Re: the commments by I walk the streets
This sales tax supports your local municipal parks -- there is doubtlessly one within walking distance of your home.
County parks will certainly benefit, but city parks will share in the largesse. I think we can all agree that a well-maintained park with working facilities benefits us all.
