Why is Bridgeport important to you?
 
Bridgeport is important to me because it is my home. I feel great living here. The people are nice. Our neighbors give me popsicles and bubble gum when I am playing outside. Another lady in town makes me delicious homemade spaghetti.
 
Two of the best places to play are at Bridgeport City Park and the City Pool. The park has two playgrounds, ball fields, and a walking trail. The pool has a water slide, two diving boards and a splash park. There are many kids like me in Bridgeport, so I have lots of friends to play with.
 
I love Bridgeport!
