Peaceful park

Letters

I recently visited the William Simmons Memorial Park at 3130 Otter Point Road and found it lovely, peaceful and quiet. It is beside Poirier Lake, although no immediate access to the lake is given it provides a most picturesque backdrop.

There are a number of picnic tables which may make it a destination for young people in school on a field trip, bring a lunch, or perhaps for residents of nursing homes to come on a bus for a pleasant destination, having, say, southern fried chicken. It is so nice for the elderly in nursing homes to have a respite out of doors.

Bearing in mind that there is no parking at that end of the park, yet there is ample parking at the other end of it. So the guests would need to alight at the entrance and the bus could park at the given parking lot.
