Plenty of potential for
Murdock green space
Re article: 'Village may put Murdock park green space up for sale,' Truro Daily News, Wednesday, Nov. 26, Page 2.
It is amazing when a green space is declared as having no purpose.
I refer to the article related to the sale of Murdock Park in Bible Hill because it is perceived as serving no purpose.
A park completely cleared and fenced in, serving no purpose to the residents of Bible Hill?
The park is admittedly in need of maintenance, there is no signage, and some fence damage. Still, footprints in the snow indicate usage.
Access from Murdock Drive provides a wide walkway (approximately seven to eight ft.) and a narrower one (approximately four ft.) exiting at the far corner, all fenced. No potential purpose perceived?
I struggle with increasing restrictions placed on our public parks and efforts to provide my canine friend with appropriate play areas to maintain this animal's health.
I see potential and purpose in this green space. It a vision in a small urban community to have a public space that is puppy friendly.
Sadly, to those who govern our community, this park serves no purpose.
Some changes needed
for Santa Claus parade
I liked the Santa Claus parade. The cars parked on the curb made it hard for us kids to see. Next time I think it would be a good idea if they parked somewhere else.
I think that the parade would be better if it had more about the true meaning of Christmas. It would have been nice to see a manger float. These are the things that I would like to see changed for next year.
