Mission Statement: Sandy Lake - Sackville River Regional Park Coalition

“To preserve and protect over 2000 acres of wildlife and aquatic habitat surrounding the Sandy/Jack/Marsh Lakes and Sackville River area, Bedford as Sandy Lake - Sackville River Regional Park for historical, cultural, conservation, educational, and recreational use.” One thousand acres are now in public ownership as the Jack Lake Regional Park. The remaining 1,000 acres are under immense development pressures and need to be protected to maintain the integrity of the Sandy Lake to Sackville River watercourse and as a critical wildlife corridor between the Chebucto Peninsula and central and eastern mainland.
