Greensboro Watershed Parks and Winston's Salem Lake & How Quality of life is Affected

3 posts in this topic

The Watershed parks of Greensboro and Winston-Salem's Salem Lake are pretty good assets to have for their respective cities, but both towns prohibit their citizens from dock fishing, swimming, or water skiing. Only pier fishing, kayaking, and those with a boat are permitted to use these parks. At least High Point allows two out of the three [dock fishing and water skiing]. And for two cities with a combined population of around 400K, this is kinda bad. If Greensboro and Winston want to help increase quality of life, should people be allowed more freedom on these natural treasures?

No. Part of Salem Lake's charm is that there are no high-speed boats screaming across what is not a big lake. It's a great place to fish in a small boat with a low-power motor. It's a wonderful place to bike through the woods or walk or jog. High speed boats to enable water skiing would definitely reduce the appeal of this place, and the quality of life.
