Letters: Brydon Lagoon underappreciated

Dear Editor,

I’ve been reading the letters in the paper regarding Brydon Lagoon and I am dismayed with the lack of appreciation for the lagoon.

New and redevelopments coming into the city are bringing more people and the lagoon offers a nice quiet place to walk and sit and enjoy the wildlife around them.

I’ve seen runners and walkers use the lagoon to exercise and seniors and children out feeding the ducks.

It is a beautiful setting in the city for all to enjoy as well as a tranquil place for birds and other wildlife.

We need to look at the problems with the fountains.

Are they the correct fountains?

Are they being maintained properly?

Let’s invest in finding and working towards a solution so that the lagoon can be saved and enjoyed by both people and wildlife for years to come.

Sharon Newbery, Langley
