LETTERS Support for council

I support the decision of council to enter a lease agreement with the Trio Marine Group

I support the decision of council to enter a lease agreement with the Trio Marine Group in developing the comparatively under-utilized south east end of Skaha Lake Park.

In my opinion the Skaha location of a waterslide makes the park a perfect tourist destination. To provide for all-season use, possibly a couple of the slides could be also designed as a kid’s version of a bobsled run providing winter fun for our youth and visitors.

The area would also be ideal for an ice surface similar to Stuart Park in Kelowna.
