I wanted to write and say that I am one of the many parents in support of the park upgrade.
I think the new design is fantastic and is just what Campbell River needs. I would disagree that the park is ‘just a neighborhood park’ as stated in Sept. 13 article. Especially in the summer months when the pool is open. Plus it is a short walk from the museum and aquarium and I can easily see tourists using the park.
When opposition to the park by neighborhod residence was launch through a social media site supporters of the upgrades did get together to see if a counter protest was needed. We were told by city counsil that the plan would go through. We were very happy!
So, yes Mayor Walkter Jakeway, there was some opposition but I assure you there is a a lot of support as well.
