No parking issue if we just walk

PARKING is a perennial problem in Gympie, especially the CBD.

You never seem to get a parking spot when you need one.

But a report tabled at yesterday's council meeting says it isn't a problem; in fact, we have 30% capacity that isn't being used. I, like most people in Gympie, like to park right outside the shop I am visiting in Mary St and I'm not really fond of parking near Jaycee Way and walking the 300m into town. I'm pretty lazy; I can't even walk the 500m down Channon St to work each day.

Maybe it's time we all changed and started to park outside Mary St and walk to the shop.

It's not that far; the parkland along the way is picturesque and it would be good for our health.

Most of us have a few kilos we could lose.

One place we do desperately need parking is at the Gympie Hospital.
