The below message was received in the CMBC mailbox so we are passing it on to you!
The City of Whitehorse created five new regional parks in 2010:
- Chadburn Lake Park
- McIntyre Creek Park
- Paddy’s Pond-Ice Lake Park
- McLean Lake Park
- Wolf Creek Park
Now we have the opportunity to envision what we want these Parks to be!
Why is this an exciting opportunity?
All said, over 30% of the total City area is now designated as a Regional Park. In fact, did you know that:
- Chadburn Lake Park is the biggest park in a Canadian municipality?
- Whitehorse has the most dedicated park-land in a Canadian municipality (by percentage AND total area)?
- (see: https://en.wikipedia.
So…how can you get involved?
Next week, Tuesday March 11th (7-9 pm), we will be hosting our first public engagement event.
