I know it probably won't make any difference, but I felt I had to comment on the sad state of Garry Point Park.
I've lived close to the park for almost 40 years, from when it was a sand dump, I watched with pleasure as it was allowed to evolve, with a little help, into a lovely, unspoiled, unpretentious place with pathways wide enough for walkers and cyclists.
Now there is gravel all over the place. Instead of paths we now have unnecessarily wide gravel roads, in some places wide enough for two buses to pass each other.
There are huge gravel traffic turn-arounds at the entrances to the two ugly ramps that lead down to the eyesore of a deserted boat pier that's off limits to the taxpayers who paid for it.
There are large pads of gravel left over from the tall ships weekend, one leading up to that totally out of place red thing in the middle of the park, (I'd much rather look at the sea, mountains, ships and kites).
Bottom line, the natural park that used to give me so much pleasure is now a man-made mess and sadly not even close to what it once was.
