Incomparable setting doesn’t need to be ‘transformed’

RE “RETHINK the Esplanade’’ (Metro, Feb. 11): Columnist Adrian Walker writes of the Esplanade that “there isn’t enough to do,’’ and that “if you’re going to fix the place, why not transform it?’’ Of course there is enough to do without transforming it. Isn’t it enough to contemplate the beauty of the park and its incomparable setting while walking, running, biking, relaxing, reading, listening?

No, it’s the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway, not the Esplanade, that could use more imagination, invention and even transformation.

Unless we simply want to copy London’s Ferris wheel idea, restoring the Esplanade to its original beauty and accessibility is enough imagination and transformation.
