Concerns have been raised about the safety at the Lyndhurst Bridge in the Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands.

Currently there is no safe way for pedestrians to cross.

The matter was discussed at the recent meeting of the United Counties of Leeds and Grenville.

Mayor Corinna Smith-Gatcke said an idea was proposed to put in a crossing light at either side of the bridge that a pedestrian could push to have safe egress across the bridge, and it would stop the traffic from coming across while a pedestrian is crossing.

Smith-Gatcke said she is hopeful that the counties will make that part of their plan.

Community garden public forum

The Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands is preparing to host a community garden public forum.

This will occur on Feb. 21 at 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. at the Lansdowne Community Meeting Room at 1 Jessie Street, Lansdowne.

The township is inviting the community to take part in this, to discuss the plans for the Lansdowne Community Garden in Jerry Park.

Outdoor rink update

In Lansdowne, continued tampering with the ice surface has slowed the opening of the Jerry Park outdoor rink, town staff says.

Repairs are coming along, and staff is urging the public that it is important to stay off the ice.

“Notice will be circulated online and posted at the rink when the rink is open,” town officials said in a statement.

In Lyndhurst, the rink at Jonas Street playground is open.
