Letter of the Day

Park picnics remain free

  • Print

On behalf of the Assiniboine Park Conservancy I would like to inform your readers that your July 18 story Lunching at park no picnic is inaccurate, misleading and unfortunate.

The reality is this. The Assiniboine Park Conservancy does not, has never and will never charge anyone for simply enjoying a picnic in the park. What we do offer is a reservation service for visitors who are wishing to book a specific site, on a specific day and at a specific time, for events such as family picnics, birthday parties and corporate functions. Even in these instances, visitors are not required to reserve a site. They can do so only if they wish to guarantee a spot's availability.

There are several other errors in the story (even in the names of two people in our office), but this is certainly the most important clarification that needs to be made.

The conservancy would like to invite all picnic-goers to enjoy the park as they always have. If you would like to reserve a specific site for your next function, please call us at 927-6060 and we would be happy to help.
