This area (BX dog park) has always been allocated to animals. One could look back in history, originally used for horses. Parks for children are scattered all over Vernon.
Take a drive, all children parks are empty with no children playing. No event coordinators or parents organizing any events in any parks. Let’s try to use the parks we have. More energy put into how to get kids to play in any parks would be time better spent.
The problem is kids do not use parks.
With that said, organized baseball use parks for four months a year. I used to coach and be a mother and I would gather the kids, bats and balls and make a game. This does not happen.
Maybe you could put money into a big computer game in the park, then maybe the kids will come.
