Two Andertons causing confusion in Comox Valley

Dear editor,

My original comment in the Nov. 7 issue of the Record was about the exercise equipment that was put in Anderton Park.

Dear editor,

I had originally sent in a comment that was in the Nov. 7 issue of the Record, regarding the exercise equipment that was put in Anderton Park and stated that I thought the taxpayers’ money would have been better spent on a water park for the kids in that area.

There was a response to my note in your publication on Nov. 14 from someone who referred to the outdoor exercise equipment on Anderton Road.

Anderton Road is in Courtenay and Anderton Park is in Comox on the corner of Balmoral Avenue and Stewart Street, so we are talking about a completely different area.

Just wanted to straighten this out as perhaps the person who replied doesn’t know the area well enough since they had only moved here in June.

Marilyn McLean,
