Sandy Lake - Sackville River Regional Park Coalition
Let's resolve unfinished business by finally protecting Sandy Lake and Sackville River
Help us expand the existing park to protect this irreplaceable natural area. Time is running out. (Urgent update below)
The Sandy Lake - Sackville River Regional Park Coalition was formed to take care of unfinished business. That is, to finally protect the land and water in the area that stretches from the Hammonds Plains Road to the Sackville River, long identified for protection as a park (well beyond what is now protected at Sandy Lake Park, a.k.a. Jack Lake Regional Park). Our Coalition supports the urgent objective of protecting this area for current and future generations before it is too late.
Our Coalition includes partners who share the long-term vision that people who care about the area have worked so hard to bring to fruition. Land protection would benefit Sandy, Marsh, and Jack Lakes (and accompanying wildlife), and the Sackville River’s watershed. An expanded Regional Park would provide an outstanding place for public access to nature and recreation for a growing city. Protection of this area is a key part of the Halifax region’s goal for a functioning Green Network Plan.
Join us in working towards the creation of a large, healthy Sandy Lake - Sackville River Regional Park.
Update: Sandy Lake was selected by the provincial-municipal
Task Force on Housing to be fast-tracked for development!
