Parking ban raises questions

Hard for children (or their grandparents) to understand the reason behind parking ban outside Mount Douglas Park

Re: Parking Ban on Glendenning. Ever since her birth, whenever my granddaughter from out of town would visit, we would drive down Glendenning Road, park the car and go for a wonderful walk in Mount Douglas Park. That part of the park is just the right terrain for a wee one.

She is five years old now and I can imagine the next time she comes to visit and we go for our usual hike in the woods. I will be driving past Glendenning Road and she will be proclaiming that I missed the turn.

I will have to explain to her that there are only five spots left and we aren’t allowed to park anywhere else on the street anymore. So we will drive through many residential blocks and park on another residential street to enter the park. She will then query, “Why can we park on this street and not on the other street?”

Kids ask the darndest questions. Why, Saanich, why?
