Not a playground

I use the exercise equipment in Parksville Community Park (the outdoor adult fitness gym) nearly every day, as do other area residents.

Quite often, parents and grandparents stop and let their very small children play and climb all over the equipment. They often hurt themselves as they are not using it correctly and are too small. They stand on the seats with their wet sandy shoes.

I would like to see signage requiring a height and/or age restriction. We residents often have to wait for the kids to finish playing as their guardians believe it is an extension of the huge playground right next to it.

Smarten up and behave responsibly with this equipment. It is not a playground.
