Minnekhada Farm Exploratory Team

Recently, the Minnekhada Park Association has formed the Minnekhada Farm Exploratory Team (MFET) for the purposes of recommending potential public uses for the farm and is working with Metro Vancouver Regional Parks and other organizations.

We’d love you to hear from you about what you think are the most suitable uses for the farm property. Your feedback will make an impact in the decisions that are made going forward. More details are on the Farm page.

  1. Saw a bunch of turtles on a log out in the middle of the marsh a few weeks ago. Can’t find the email address to send the picture to ….sorry. I hope this is ok?

    On another note. I really hope that with the incredible increased amount of people, ever since Covid and all the new construction occurring locally bringing in high density populations attending to the park, the park will close during the time of the toadlets (sp?) migration in the park. Give the wildlife a break. I saw so many squished on the pathway. It was really sad. Also, the incredible increase of people and people with their dogs off leash is insane. People have no idea about the damage that their dogs are doing along the trials to the fauna and to the bird nesting populations. I am also really tired of people leaving their dog shit and dog poo bags along the trail as if there is a poo bag ferry that collects them.

    I hope a way can be found to limit the amount of people attending the marsh….. it is getting increasingly over-populated in this park and please find a way to manage all the off leash dogs in the park. – perhaps eliminate the parking on the road close to the park? If this park is to be saved and kept as beautiful and diverse as it is ….human interaction and population should be limited.

    Warmly,

    Mia
