THERE were two articles in last week’s Eastern Reporter about the spaces allocated to the different areas of Riverside Gardens for dogs and pedestrians.
Both have some merit, but I would throw my penny’s worth in the debate by disputing South Guildford mother Rebecca Cain’s statement that the dog area is only a small bit of the parkland.
The times I have been down there it looks like a very large area to me and her quote is completely unjustified.
I think the bike paths are pretty fair, but if a child is on a bike like Mrs Nara-Beth Bonfiglio’s child is, I think the mother should be allowed to accompany her.
There could be more patrolling of the gardens by the rangers because at the last Avon Descent I told a bike rider he was on a pedestrian path and got a real mouthful from him.
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the ranger to report him.
On the whole, I think the council got it right.
