The two acre park is located at 1978 Pleasant Valley Road, Spallumcheen BC, just 1 km south of the Armstrong city limit. The New Beginnings Benevolent Society (NBBS) has been working since 2017 to develop and restore two acres of pasture land to the way it was one hundred and fifty years ago. NBBS created the wetland heritage park around constructed wetland ponds to provide a living classroom for an educational outreach aimed primarily at youth and information for everyone interested in protecting the environment.
Through interpretive signage, hand outs, on-site planting and craft workshops, the outreach will :
- Embrace Traditional Ecological Knowledge and western science,
- Explore the historical significance of the area,
- Showcase native plants and their traditional uses
- Illustrate the components of a wetland ecosystem
