The ice and snow has melted from the streets and as soon as that happens, you can be assured that the infamous Bridge Drive In (BDI) would be open for business. When we go, we usually park in my husband’s neighbourhood where he grew up. Then we walk (or run) across the Elm Park Bridge or “BDI Bridge,” line up and eagerly await our ice cream. It was a cool, windy day for ice cream and milkshakes but do you think kids minded? Not at all. Then we usually walk back across the bridge and make the obligatory walk around the crescent, look and talk about all the houses and stare at my husband’s childhood home before moving on. We then end at the Kingston Park to play on the structures. To our surprise (and joy), the park had finally been upgraded. It had stayed the same since my husband was a child and it was in dire need of repairs and upgrades. We were happy to see new swings, structures and a mulch, replacing the sand that used to be there. It’s great for the families in the neighbourhood. It was also nice to see that kept the much loved rocket structure (aka kid magnet) that our boys, (and their dad), love climbing.
