Did you know that Widgeon Marsh Neglected Park Reserve sits on the largest freshwater marsh in southwest BC? It's also got spectacular waterfront views. There's currently no public access to the site, but we'd like to change that.
Metro Vancouver is developing a regional park management plan that aims to give people opportunities to connect with nature in Widgeon Marsh, while protecting the site's sensitive wetlands and ecosystems. A park plan will determine how public use and facilities can be accommodated.
Located along the Pitt River in northeast Coquitlam, Widgeon Marsh Neglected Park Reserve protects over 620 hectares of wetlands and woodlands. Limited access for research and educational purposes requires a Special Use Permit from Metro Vancouver.
