The city of Surrey just had a great open house about some parks they’re planning near the new Sunnyside Elementary School (159th St and 28th Ave). They have the information boards and a survey available online! Do take a look and fill out the survey. Actually, the survey is a word document and might be hard to fill out…you could try my adobe acrobat version (Wills_Brook_questionnaire) and email it to them if it’s easier.
When land is at a premium and the city doesn’t have funds to buy up valuable forested lands, developers work with the city to try to save some trees. A few are indeed being saved…it’s certainly better than 100 years ago, when they chopped down absolutely everything.
Here’s a picture of the parks they have planned for our area, just FYI.
