Senior worried about plan for new amenities here

With each passing day, as a senior and grandparent, my concern for Aldergrove grows.

With each passing day, as a senior and grandparent, my concern for Aldergrove grows.

Has anyone given thought to the increased traffic on Fraser Highway at game times when the new arena and pool is built? The traffic is already bad for anyone crossing the highway. Having seen the refurbishment of Twin Rinks, why can’t the present rink be improved? It has plenty of parking and also has a good setting for weekend camp meets.

We have already lost a great family gathering place after the outdoor water feature was taken away from our beautiful Aldergrove Lake Park. What families need is to restore this lake for all to use. An outdoor pool is strictly a drop-off, not something that will be used by the whole family for half a day or all day.

Now we are being faced with another nature loss in the sale of the Glen Valley forest. This natural forest should be preserved as is for the use of all. In Europe natural walks and nature with water features are preserved even in busy cities.

As a senior, moving the library is of great concern. Presently most off us either walk or take the bus without risking our lives crossing the street to use it.

Nanette Uhl, Aldergrove
