The Regional Board has approved property purchases and statutory rights of way totaling almost one million dollars to add to the Regional Park system. The purchases will see just over seven hectares added to some existing and future parks.
A 1.08-hectare parcel along with two rights of way will be added to the future Trepanier Creek Greenway Regional Park ($100,500). A five-hectare parcel has been purchased for $475,000 to be added to the existing Coldham Regional Park, while an almost one-hectare parcel has been purchased for future use as a greenway recreational corridor along Lebanon Creek adjacent to the Scouts Canada Camp Dunlop.
For more information about the purchases please view this report to the Regional Board.
I am also still watching for news on the Black Knight Mountain Regional Park that is to be created!
