“Petition slams Belcarra parking fee as 'cash grab' as hot weather draws crowds,” (Tri-City News, April 17)
I knew it was a matter of time before Belcarra Regional Park would have pay parking. For years, Metro Vancouver parks has relatively ignored this park but after last summer's parking debacle they saw an opportunity for a “cash grab.”
Will any of the revenue go towards the park infrastructure? I doubt that very much. Instead, it appears to be another dip into our pockets in my opinion. When they have to make a statement that it's "not a revenue generator" it means that it's exactly that.
