It’s just a memory now of that beautiful scene of picnic tables under the trees at Stewart Parkway. Those responsible for maintain the area, found it too difficult for themselves so they moved the tables to dockmaster’s shack. Problem solved. Tables are now seldom used. This begs the question: why spend more money on the waterfront? People are liable to use it.

They’re finding out they’ve got to pay a whole lot more money than they thought they would.
