My wife and I are retired and recently moved to Cameron Park. We enjoy walking, but for health reasons we need something on the level. We tried some of the local streets, but with no sidewalks and traffic typically speeding by at 10 to 20 mph over the speed limit, we feared for our safety.
Then someone suggested Cameron Park Lake for a pleasant 30-minute stroll. However, we have now discovered that as the weather has turned nicer we will have to pay for a safe place to walk in a town with no sidewalks. We could understand if we were using park facilities for several hours or the entire day but having to pay to go for a short walk makes us feel like we are being gouged. We even have to pay to take the grandkids to the playground for a few minutes. It just seems wrong. And, I’m sure it puts many people off from going there either because they can’t afford it or simply out of principle.
What’s next, toll roads around town and parking meters at the Community Center?
