Jackson Park is one of the natural gems of Peterborough Ontario It should be preserved intact for enjoyment of this and future generations. A bridge through the center of Jackson Park would take two years of construction, disrupt the flora and fauna of this beautiful natural habitat, create untold noise and light pollution, as well as ruin the aesthetics of this majestic natural space.
A retaining wall by the pond at the Pagoda footbridge near the Park's entrance would also create a major disruption to the park and put two lanes of traffic virtually on top of the trail running on the east side of the pond.
