Bridge is vi­tal for the park

Te Awamutu Courier - - News -

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
