    In a day, were green space is precious and there is a push to become active, I am in disbelief that we could loose our green space were the kids use to sled in the winter, people walk with families and with their pets. You can see people jog and cycle here, people meet and even make new friends here. The older generation use these beautiful walking paths by the creek too. I remember the kids in Beavers (part of Scouts) that actually planting trees there. Did you know that? These kids are now young adults and remember these trees. These same kids are still known to take walks down in these areas where they have established warm and wonderful memories with family and friends and with the older people (some are from the near by retirement homes) an area they also feel safe in. Help keep us fit and friends by keeping these wonderful green areas that promote these positive qualities in people. If that is not enough said, this area is a great place to get back to basic after a long work day. There is even a good chance to see wild life, which is another good reason to keep the area green (for the animals). I have seen people fish there too. With the fishing and the animals, its a great learning experience for the young and enjoyed by all ages. So many will be upset if the green land is lost!!! I have taken guests to this area. Its a diamond in Winnipeg for tourists to see!!!
