LETTER: Parks & Rec to the rescue

A little old woman and her husband enjoyed their morning walks through the park near their home on Walter Road...

This is a true story.

A little old woman and her husband enjoyed their morning walks through the park near their home on Walter Road.

On sunny days, the birds sang beautifully and the air was soft and balmy. However, when the rains beat down day after day, they found it impossible to take their walks in the park.

The pathways become muddy and the grassy areas slippery. More than once the little old woman slipped and fell.

“No more walks in the park,” said her husband.

“Whatever shall we do?” thought the little old woman. “I know. I’ll write to Parks and Recreation, perhaps they’ll come and gravel the muddy, slippery pathways.”

And so they did.

Before long, gravel was delivered and the work began.

Now the couple can walk in safety, once again enjoying the little park just off Walter Road and Whatcom.

Our thanks to Abbotsford Parks and Recreation, for coming to our rescue.
