Letter: How I think Port Moody could make good use of its mud flats

"Big money and a lot of time," as well as public support, can turn the mud flats into an outdoor community hub, this letter writer believes.

Re: New boardwalk rising over Port Moody mudflats (May 1, 2024)

I have many ideas for the mud flats in Port Moody inlet. It’s going to take a lot of money, time and a lot of public support.

I would like to see two ice rinks on pillars for spooning fish to hide. They could also be used in the summer for other sports.

I would also like to see a salt water pool at Old Orchard Park.

I know, big dreams, but it’s possible the city could rent paddle wheel boats, electric surfboards, electric boats and other water toys to help pay for this.

As well, hosting car shows and dances at night in the hall each month could be from each generation; cars and dancing, music from the 30s, 40s and 50s, and so on.

I know I said it before: big money and a lot of time, but why not think about it.

Big dreamer.
