Two parks at Christina Lake are expected to become bigger, as part of legislation introduced Thursday by the provincial government.
If passed, the legislation will add to three hectares of foreshore at Christina Lake Park and 20 hectares at Gladstone Park on the lake’s north end, consisting of six hectares of private land and 14 hectares of foreshore, which is a kokanee spawning area.
“People are passionate about protecting our environment in British Columbia, whether for conservation or for recreation,” Boundary-Similkameen MLA Roly Russell said in a news release.
“Park expansions like this expand our options for places to play and help us protect sensitive ecosystems like kokanee spawning streams. For all of us today, and for our children’s futures, I’m glad these opportunities will exist.”
Administrative amendments and road ownership changes are also being proposed to Big White Mountain Ecological Reserve.
