Visitors to Kitchener's Victoria Park will soon have a new option for a bite to eat while they enjoy the scenery.

Kitchener city councillors unanimously agreed Monday to allow a food truck into the park while The Boathouse is undergoing renovations. 

"It's going to be at the bottom of Water Street. There is a city garage area at the bottom of Water Street with a little parking area and that's where we're going to have a site for that food truck," said Councillor Frank Etherington, who proposed the idea at Monday's council meeting. 

Etherington says council was willing to make an exception because The Boathouse will be closed until September.
