If Magical Bridge is closed, someone needs to tell that to the at least 50 people using it on Sunday when I rode by.

It seems odd to me that this is closed when right next door the pickle-tennis, or whatever that is, was absolutely packed with shouting, sweaty seniors. Seems pretty arbitrary.

Sloane P- yep. Many of the regulations make no sense. And good,l is getting an answer from county health.

Now the people in charge had 6 plus months to come up with a plan to open the magic bridge playground. They knew that the playground would be allowed to open at some point. Why haven’t they worked on a plan ? All they say, it will open but we don’t know when???? Why don’t they know when??? Seems like incompetence from the people that are responsible for this place.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
