Broken Court Street water line repair/excavation is settling. You can see that asphalt had to be added to north end to make a ramp.
How water drains off of the new street constructed next to the parking lot constructed at the south end of Marina Park. There are no catchbasins on the west side of the street (right side in photo) so all water has to flow across the street. Interesting as normally there are catchbasins on both sides of the street.
Funny to watch parents with the children on the rink. No parent wears a helmet. No matter how poor a skater the parent is, they refuse to wear a helmet. They would rather suffer a head injury, possibly becoming a bedridden vegetable for the rest of their lives, than put an the same head protection that they require their children to wear. Lead by example is my motto. Your kids will love you for it.
Then there are the parents who don’t have skates but still walk out on the ice. Not only do they risk their safety but also drag salt and sand onto the ice surface.
Soo how are the snow sculptures doing?
Vehicles use that pulloff for all day parking which I believe is wrong. There are two parking lots nearby that workers and visitors can use…for free. Until the City of Thunder Bay enforces parking regulations in the park, people will ignore them.
