Willband Creek Park

Co-op Community Viewing Platform

The Abbotsford-Mission Nature Club (AMNC) has received a $90,000 donation from Co-op Community Spaces, a funding program supporting recreation, environmental conservation and urban agriculture projects.

The donation will be used by the club to construct a new trail, boardwalk and 400-square-foot viewing platform in Willband Creek Park, providing visitors with mountain views and excellent bird-watching opportunities.

As part of the project, native trees and shrubs will also be planted in the area, restoring and enhancing wildlife habitat.

The wheelchair-accessible platform, designed by local architect Ryan Huston of CHP Architects and engineered by Bill Louwerse of Lang Engineering, will be completed this year.
