BURLINGTON, ON

 

The parks were closed by the province; then they were opened when the province realized the closing was a dumb decision.

Georgian - closed playground

This boy just wants to play and that yellow tape is in the way.

But not all the parks are open and that is a concern for an Aldershot parent who lives in the Georgian Court community where the park put in place and maintained by the housing company is closed.

Mayor response

Mayors says: Go ahead and use the park. It wasn’t a public park.

Her unit looks right out over the park and her son just does not understand why he can’t be outside playing.

Nor does his Mom who is a stay at home parent and asked not to be personally identified.

She is part of a group of parents who are all stay-at-home mothers and do everything they can to keep their children active and outdoors as much as possible.

In Burlington when you have a problem – you call the Mayor, who explained to our parent that indeed the parks are open.

Georgian message

Georgian Court Management explains their position – which isn’t the same as that of the Mayor. Problem is they are talking about different kinds of parks.

Some miscommunication in there somewhere – the Office of the Mayor didn’t understand that the park that had been closed was not a city park.

Our parent didn’t know who her ward councillor was. We’ve put the two of them together to see if someone can explain to the community when the private community park can be opened.
