The author at the 91st annual Polar Bear Swim
As a new year begins, I look back on the most memorable Park Board moments in 2010.
I’m so proud of the partnership between Friends of Bloedel (FOB) and VanDusen. By identifying Bloedel as a facility that wasn't working in its former capacity, it now has a good support network and will no longer be ignored. It took a lot of hard work, but John Cooper and the FOBs have made this a reality.
At the Park Board, we finally found proper gear for Eleanor Hadley so that she can hear at our meetings.
The greatest highlights for me included cutting the red tape at the first ever BMX track, Kensington Skatepark. The signing of Leeside over to the Park Board from the city’s Engineering Department was another special moment.
