LETTER: Improvements needed at Scout Island

The City can do better managing their responsibilities

Editor:

As the summer approaches and the COVID-19 restrictions continue, the need to get out to enjoy the great outdoors is now.

I regularly frequent Scout Island and the beach area along with friends.

The condition of the driveway into the beach and boat launch is disgusting.

Here we have a world-class nature centre and the access to it is like a developing nation.

The high grass along the causeway is not only unsightly, but a fire hazard. I am led to believe the area is the city’s responsibility and needs to be better maintained for the reasons mentioned.

I believe there is also the need for some sort of shelter for shade, especially in the picnic area.

Other amenities such as a food truck or ice cream stand might also be beneficial for users of the area.

Improvements to our beach and boat launch should be considered.

Nature Trust is doing a great job managing their part of the area.

The city can do better managing their responsibilities.

Let’s all work together and make Scout Island a great place for young and old to enjoy.
