Bridge is vital for the park
Waipa¯ District Council appears to be missing the fact that the memorial park bridge they are considering removing is by far and away the most important of the three.
This bridge’s proximity to the toilets is essential for both the elderly and the young.
Also it is adjacent to the busy part of the park, close to the carpark, playground, seating and duckpond.
My home overlooks the park so I know how popular this area is.
I enjoy a short walk along the riverbank myself, but find the extra distance now a bit too much.
Remember councils don’t always get it right, just look at the leaning pots in the main street. MARJORIE WILSON
