Our View: River plan not new but still a good one

THE idea of developing some spots along our beautiful Mary River for local families and visitors to enjoy is not new, but that does not detract from what an excellent idea it is.

When you sit down and realise that it's true - Gympie's two favourite river spots (the weir and the Sands) can only be accessed via rough dirt tracks - it's really quite incredible.

It makes every sense to spend some money and draw up realistic designs along the banks of the Mary, particularly between Kidd Bridge and Albert Park where I know heaps of kids spend plenty of time on the weekends and while waiting around for touch footy to start.

Obviously, the fact that the area floods often and badly would have to be factored in.

Nothing too fancy or flimsy.

Anything would be an improvement.

Clear a bit of land and level it out for parking.

It wouldn't be that hard.
