New features for families at Aldergrove Regional ParkNew features for families at Aldergrove Regional Park<div class="ExternalClassFFE8691D61744B1AA23935A0EC75823C"><p>Plans are in the works to spruce up the main day use area at Aldergrove Regional Park, with a children’s nature discovery area, interpretive trail and shallow wetland to provide more opportunities for people to experience, enjoy and connect with nature. </p><p>The nature discovery area will include robust trail connections, picnicking and gathering sites and a range of new plants. Several thematic landscape features will offer interpretations of the park’s distinct geological history, shaped by both glaciers and people, as well as the park’s wildlife including the large resident coyote population. The exhibits aim to encourage interaction, play and learning.</p><p>The interpretive trail will open up an area of the park that’s not currently accessible to the public. The trail will take advantage of an existing wet area to create a new wetland and enhance the park’s natural landscape and biodiversity.</p><p>Construction will begin next year with opening scheduled for 2019.
