Friends of the Park

Friends of the Park was formed in 2003 under the leadership of Ken Wilson (former chief horticulturalist for Parks Canada in Ottawa), when it became clear that the Spring and Fall work days could not meet the maintenance requirements for the Park.

Linda Carabetta led Friends of the Park from 2006 until 2008, when Barb Thorkelson assumed a leadership role in the planning, designing, maintenance and expansion of the garden beds.

“Friends” meets every Tuesday morning from 9:00 am – 11:00 am March to October, with coffee to follow at Minter's. Turnout varies every week, with anywhere from eight to 20 gardeners in attendance.

To join this friendly group of keen gardeners phone Barb at 604-703-1168, or show up at the Park any Tuesday morning.
