Public input invited on Aldergrove Lake plan

The public is invited to participate in the creation of the Aldergrove Lake Regional Park Management Plan.

The public is invited to participate in the creation of the Aldergrove Lake Regional Park Management Plan.

The management plan will set up a policy framework that helps to express a common understanding of the park’s future, identify opportunities and contraints for various park uses, make management intentions transparent, and the decisions of staff and management accountable, said park planner Jeff Fitzpatrick.

Aldergrove Lake Regional Park is located in the southeast corner of Langley, straddling the Abbotsford border to Lefeuvre Road, and hugging the U.S. border to the south along 0 Avenue. The park offers expansive and stunning views of neighbouring agricultural lands and the Coast Mountains, including Mount Baker. Features of the park include Aldergrove Bowl, the historic lake site, heritage homes and farms, Pepin Brook—home to endangered Nooksack Dace and Salish Sucker—and the Big Rock, a remnant of the last Ice Age.

This 280 hectare park welcomes around 350,000 visitors a year, who come to walk, jog, cycle, ride horseback, view wildlife, enjoy nature, or let their dog romp in the off-leash area.

A working group session will be held Monday, Nov. 21, 6 to 8 p.m. in Aldergrove. If you would like to participate, please phone or e-mail your interest by November 11 (call 604-530-4983, or e-mail Jeffrey.fitzpatrick@metrovancouver.org ). Results from this session and the June 2011 Open House, will inform the concept development for the park.
