IF YOU HEAD DOWN TO RIVERSIDE PARK on any given summer day, you’re likely to see members of the Kamloops Society for Creative Anachronism, also known as the Shire of Ramsgaard, re-enacting classic swordplay and battle scenes of the 17th Century.
A pair of proposals for Riverside had its defenders threatening to take up swords and shields this week.
First, the group proposing to build a public market facility in the parking lot along Lorne Street launched a community feedback survey to determine what people think of the idea.
Second, Kamloops council voted to create a recreation and revitalization project for the park, a means by which to apply for a grant to fund an outdoor skating rink.
