Parking restrictions needed

Don't sacrifice Glendenning's appeal for the many non-motorized uses in order to accommodate a few more parked cars

I would like to add my voice to those who support the parking restrictions on Glendenning Road.

It’s wonderful that so many people love to use Mount Douglas Park. This park has several access points and parking areas that accommodate many cars, and most of these do provide easily accessible and low-impact walking trails.

From the large lower parking lot, there is gorgeous walking along Mt. Doug Creek. For a longer walk, one could cross Ash Road to access the extensive (flat) trails between Ash and Cordova Bay Rds. The parking at the bottom of Churchill Drive also provides access to flat and accessible trails in the forest. If park users drive to the Glendenning access and find that lot full, they only need to drive a few minutes to one of these other (more generous) parking areas.

As someone who runs, walks, cycles and drives a car, I appreciate the character of Glendenning Road and don’t think it’s worth sacrificing its appeal for the many non-motorized uses in order to accommodate a few more parked cars.
