Re: "Food cart failure in Surrey," Our View, the Now. Aug. 21.
Thanks for shedding light on it. I had been wondering, "Where are they?" Last I read was that the food trucks were going to be in Holland Park. I missed the opening Friday and I thought I’d go there on Sunday. There was no sign of them.
The past weekend, I drove by there on my way somewhere. I could see something on the south side of the park, behind the waterfall wall. I wondered if it was the food trucks – why are they back there away from the front side of the park? Next day, no sign of them.
Earlier reports had said they will be in front of city hall. There is no free parking anywhere in the area, and I wondered how they expect public to patronize them.
You also mentioned North Surrey Rec Centre parking lot. There is only pay or controlled parking there. It is not conducive to people just dropping by. Car is still the king south of the Fraser.
You are right. The food truck program has been a bust.
