We have an absurd view of parks in Halifax. With some few exceptions, vending is frowned upon, and alcohol is flat out illegal. Moreover, we paint all parks with the same expectation: they are green wildernesses first, and people fit in only so far as the green wilderness is maintained. This would be a much better city if we changed the way we interact with our urban green spaces, and brought people and green together.
