I was interested in the recent discussion regarding an extension of Vancouver's waterfront walkway system along the Point Grey waterfront. I think the Park Board was wise in deferring the matter since as evidenced by these photos taken of the original North Shore False Creek walkway, the city either doesn't have the money, or the inclination to maintain what we already have.

Alternatively, organize some volunteer days when residents are encouraged to come out with their gardening implements and do some weeding and cleaning up. Reward them with coffee and donuts, or whatever!
