Forget nooners in a secluded parking lot overlooking the Bedford basin; Haligonians are making it happen in Point Pleasant Park. Not wind, nor sleet, nor rain, nor lack of cover will deter Halifax’s outdoors-lovers from getting busy in the great outdoors. Hurricane Juan and the subsequent loss of foliage in the park didn’t seem to bother too many people; this is a repeat win for the park. One wonders what effect recently proposed changes to Point Pleasant—with more trees at the top of the list—will have for our wilderness Romeos and Juliets. Requests for more spongy undergrowth should be submitted before planting season.
