LETTERS: No need to fix the beach

I recently heard about the proposed changes to the White Rock beach (White Rock revives Spirit Square vision, Feb. 24).

I recently heard about the proposed changes to the White Rock beach (White Rock revives Spirit Square vision, Feb. 24).

My family spent many hours on many, many days on the beach in the 1950s and 1960s.

I love that beach and wish I could still go. But the fact is that it is impossible to find parking. So many people want to go and enjoy that marvelous beach, that all parking spaces are filled early in the day.

Why on earth would White Rock officials wish to “improve” the beach? It is obvious everyone loves it the way it is. It ain’t broke. Tell those officials not to fix it. For $30 million yet!

White Rock is already a powerful lure for thousands of people.

I’ll tell them how to ‘improve’ the beach – build a funicular railway from the top of the hill down to Marine Drive. A cable would haul counterbalanced trains up and down the track. But no, so many people would come that you wouldn’t be able to see the sand for the people.

What is behind this ridiculous proposal? Who wants this to happen?
