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.
