A sliver of nature turned into a theme park?

So to address this current issue of changing McAdam, Rotary Park from its current natural state to some kind of circus.

Firstly, it’s completely absurd and ridiculous. What are you thinking? I would like to give recognition and gratitude for all these who have submitted letters of the same opinion. Well done.

I have been walking my dogs in this park for over 25 years. I’ve met all kinds of people who enjoy its natural splendor and are able to reflect in this small sanctuary surrounded by a ever growing and faster society.

I would like to give a shout out to the City of Duncan works crew who do a first rate job maintaining our local playing fields and parks. The river park serves many people with different needs, from nine to 90. These activities range from casual walks to serious fitness, also allowing dogs to run and socialize. I should note that most dog owners are very responsible with their pet’s behavior and cleaning up. However the few baddies seem to get all the press.

It should also be noted that this park was donated as a “natural park” for the citizens of Cowichan and visitors by the benevolent Rotarians. So any stipulations that it must remain this way? I’m sure that was the intention.

Any kind of changes would not be an improvement and only further remove nature from our lives.
