Kenneth, great post. I am a frequent user of Churchill Park... I coach U4 soccer in the lawn bowling fields area, and I take my kids to that park on a lot of Saturdays. There is a problem right now with the park being used by teens at night to drink, break glass, and cause minor trouble. I can't see what the issue would be with a bike path, though. Not for the life of me!

Since I like to drop into Westdale for a coffee of a warm summer evening, I've been known to stroll through Churchill and more than once I have happened upon teens engaging in various degrees of illegal behaviour (illegal by teens in public, anyway). The thing is, it's so easy for residents of the area concerned about the park to take an occasional walk there in the evening - and help keep it clean!

As for the Timmie's at the foot of Westdale Village, Westdalers might think of that cast of colourful characters there as a "rough element" but you'd have to be a complete wimp to think so! I tire of the occasional panhandling, true... but it's an awfully nice bunch of folks, just not in competition for the Upper Class Twit of the Year like some of our neighbours... :) I didn't know it attracted opposition, that's fascinating.
