“It’s a local gathering place.”
Residents are angry in Surrey after the pond at a local park is drying up, causing concern for local wildlife and neighbours.
The Glenwood Park pond in the Fraser Heights area has been a gathering place for the community for over 20 years.
Local resident Sara Pickering says the pond has significant importance to the neighbourhood and is a regular meeting place for residents and a popular spot for wedding photos.
“It was posted this week, somebody said, ‘I was recommended to take my wedding photos at Glenwood Pond, but but I understand that it’s almost empty.”
Dave Holden are concerned about the local wildlife population.
“Now we’ve got a problem with fish in the pond and some turtles and also it’s creating a health hazard because now you’ve got lots of mud around the pool, where the mosquitos just love it.”
The City of Surrey was contacted, but said a comment would be provided Wednesday, after officials have had time to look into the issue.
