Recreation restricted

We are dismayed at the restriction of parking along Glendinning at our favourite entrance to Mount Douglas

We are dismayed at the restriction of parking along Glendinning at our favourite entrance to Mount Douglas.

I belong to a small group of women ‘of a certain age’  that have always enjoyed meeting to walk and allow our dogs a safe off-leash run. We have not been able to get together there since the parking restrictions were instigated.

We can’t car pool as we come from all corners of the district, so have given up trying to meet there. It has always been a healthy walk in a beautiful and restful setting and we miss it.  With various health concerns, it is the best place for us to exercise ourselves and our dogs. Parking farther away is not an option.

Please reconsider this decision and think about ways to open up more parking.  I am sure it can be done.  In the meantime please remove the no parking signs and let us go back to the way it was.
