Yeah.
Like the boaters that cause issues will be fined.

Whatever.

I'm gonna walk on a closed park.
You'll see me on the front page.
Not.

The parks are proving to be quite dangerous right now.

At Antler's Beach Regional Park the debris was filled with nails. Wave action had brought up old glass and metal objects. The undercuts are horrendous, and wood debris is everywhere.

And it's not the closed one!
Want your bags of leaves gone? Put a "free" sign on them out by the road so people can grab them.

Sounds less dangerous than walking across my uncle's yard.
We had a lot of fun running and playing around that yard.

I had the back forty at Silver Star to run around in. So what?
The parks are closed to the public for a reason: limit city liablity. Period.

You injure yourself going into a closed park, DO NOT sue the City for your stupidity.

I had a trip to Jubilee Hospital with a nail in my foot from some backwoods board.

That we did.
Why, we liked it so much we rarely threw the board with nails away.
We'd toss it back into the yard, eyes closed, just to add a new challenge!!!

The biggest worry was little brother, he might spill his guts..
But me and my big brother wouldnt tell the parents.

And your parents would always tell you some scary stories, about scraping yourself on a rusty nail...and getting
Blood poisoning.. So it made it harder to sleep that night.......

I suspect the City is covering there butt, few years ago a person (if memory serve me correctly) from Kamloops was in Penticton tripped over tree root in a park.
Decided to sue the city, not sure how that turned out.

My point is by closing those parks & placing a $500 fine, anyone that goes into a closed park & injuries themselves. Would not be able to sue city, hence city is covering there butt.

So this applies only to those posted regional parks according to the Cnet story in the link. Is there any such policy within the city? I see at some places such as Strathcona and Kinsmen there are small placards staked to the remaining small area of lawn saying beach area closed. Ventured out there yesterday myself. Lovely smell that I can only imagine what it will be like as the waters eventually start to recede. Parks along the lakefront may be the last place one will want to be on a nice 37C afternoon in July with a nice level of humidity to top the experience off.

Like Calvin and Hobbes, dad says it builds character.
Would so rather be over educated that a knuckle dragging Neanderthal bereft of critical thought and imagination. Although in the case of Neanderthals, that's quite the insult.
