Good News for Pet Owners Using Rose Hill Park

Gary was so kind to add a metal bowl to the drinking fountain in Rose Hill Park so that you can now give your pet a refreshing drink at the end of a scenic hike, round of disc golf, or hard-fought tennis (or pickleball) match. Lets hope it stays there for a long time.

Thanks to Those Keeping Rose Hill Road Tidy

Often, Springtime is when we organize a Rose Hill Road Trash Bash. It is great to see that some anonymous Rose Hill resident(s) have taken it upon themselves to pick up garbage along the road. What a difference and, for the first time in memory, a Rose Hill Road Trash Bash is simply not necessary!  Also, a recent examination of the area around the upper water tower and the first part of Scott Road, two traditional illegal dumping sites, is also neat and free from garbage.  Again, thank you to those that are making the extra effort to keep our neighbourhood tidy.
Thank you Gary for checking the different locations out.

Rose Hill Park Update – October 31st

Hello High Country Neighbours,

· SAFETY ALERT — The “no-posts” along Rose Hill Road and adjacent to Rose Hill Park will be removed next week (November 2 – November 6). During this time flaggers will be on-site helping to control traffic, so be aware that there may be some minor traffic delays. Some of these no-posts will be used to provide a safety barrier at the steepest part of the drop-off on the north side of the road, just uphill from the S-bend.

· PARK UPDATE — The split rail fence on the east side of Rose Hill Road will be extended both uphill and downhill; an opening will be installed for easy access to the area east of the Park.

· PARK UPDATE — The 1.5 km. perimeter trail around Rose Hill Park has now been completed! There are some worries that the trail surface may become quite muddy and difficult to use during the wetter months, so we want to monitor usage and the trail condition. Let Gary Bunney (250 314-1805) know if you have anything to share about the Rose Hill Park Trail and its condition and he will pass this information on to city staff for further park planning.
