Many kudos; kids took home items they made themselves, grandparents were delighted with new ideas they could create with grandchildren, and sharing with the community abounded. Attendees “joined the conversation“ to share their ideas for alternatives - gifts from the heart.
The Foothills Community Association seeks your endorsement for the creation of a natural park to be situated above the developed part of Foothills (Please be assured that any endorsement in no way entails financial commitment.)
Such a park would provide spectacular views over all of Greater Vernon, preserve habitat in an area formally identified as ecologically sensitive, and link to the Grey Canal Trail and thus add to a necklace of parks and trails that serve as a gateway to Silver Star. The area under consideration has spectacular rocky bluffs and already has rough trails which provide access to viewpoints via a nearly flat route, as well as offering more physically demanding paths to access them. It would provide a restful place for peaceful personal renewal where one could enjoy the panoramic views, wildlife in its natural setting and be a destination for tourists.
