...when are we going to remove the duck ponds from Beacon Hill Park? 

They are not part of the natural landscape, so hopefully soon.

That walkway concept looks amazing. Of course it will never happen, but it looks amazing.

Tourism Victoria really should push for it. Ya parks do not pay TV annual dues but we need anything that keeps tourist here just one extra day. We could make cool sidewalk markings from the harbour to the park.

Cool sidewalk markings? What are aspiring to become, Nanaimo circa 1992?

The problem is that there is no "tourist brochure" or even a BHP website. Nobody is vouching for it. We need to show people it's right freaking there, no bus required. Then we need to make it better.

Yosemite Park in California opens up a discreet Starbucks with no exterior signage.

 

“We understand that there is some concern among park purists, but we heard from many guests who expressed support for the change,” he said. “We ultimately selected Starbucks based on feedback from guests, and because it aligns with our goals of elevating the food and beverage offerings throughout the park.”

“There’s an existing pathway right now. We’re simply widening it out. It’s 1.5 metres. We’re widening it out to 2.7,” Dellebuur said.

 

Nice, but widening an existing path isn't exactly new.

 

In many respects, the city will simply be improving what is already being used as a multi-modal path.
 
“Currently cyclists are not permitted on that pathway in the park, but we were unable get a photo when we were out there that didn’t have a cyclists using the path,” Dellebuur said.

 

 

Hey... I just thought of a great way to get the city to remove stop signs.  :lol:
