Re: [‘Garden Wild’ zone proposed for Nicomekl, Feb. 28, Langley Advance Times]
I saw the article published in the paper about the Nicomekl River District proposal, which includes Brydon Lagoon.
It seems that someone is determined to turn this “wildlife refuge” area into a “park.”
Brydon Park is less than two blocks away, with a beautiful playground.
Why do we need a children’s playground here on the flood plain, where the river flooded over it all not more than a month ago – an occurrence that happens every winter.
And a conservation deck out into the middle of the lagoon will inhibit much of the birds/waterfowl that come to this area.
People come from all across the Lower Mainland to Brydon Lagoon due to richness of this environment.
The City is calling it Garden Wild, let’s leave it wild!
