New Brighton Park Habitat Restoration Open House August 29th

New Brighton Park Shoreline
Park Board and Port Metro Vancouver are studying a proposal to restore shoreline habitat at New Brighton Park. The plans include the creation of a Salt Marsh. An Open House is being organized at the following time and place:

Date: Saturday, August 29, 2015, 1-4pm
Location: New Brighton Park, north of the swimming pool (3201 New Brighton Road)

This is the first public review of concept plans for the shoreline. Park Board will subsequently review a preferred concept plan. Detailed design work will likely take place in 2016. Further details can be found on the Park Board website.

The Park Board and PMV would do well to look at natural sections of shoreline along other parts of Burrard Inlet to help inform this study.
