QB bench with a view

Walking is a big activity in Qualicum Beach and Jack Wilson, as head of the recreation and parks commission, knows that pretty well.

He also knows that, with an aged demographic, those walkers appreciate a good spot to sit down and enjoy the view here and there along the route.

Thanks to Wilson, they’ll have one more opportunity to enjoy the vista after council passed a recommendation from the commission to install a bench at the corner of Poplar Avenue and Alder Street.

“It’s an ideal location for a bench,” Wilson said. “The question the commission had was who will pay for it. I go along with the commission recommendation that the town pays for it. It’s a fabulous place for a bench to sit and admire the view.”

The motion passed.
