Retain motor boat ramp at Ambleside Park West Vancouver

This petition had 907 supporters

The closure of the existing boat ramp at Ambleside Park in West Vancouver (as per the recommendations of the  Ambleside Waterfront Concept Plan) would preclude small trailered motorized vessels from accessing the waters of West Vancouver for recreational purposes such as general boating and fishing. This would force small vessels to travel greater distances at greater risk to reach this popular destination.The nearest public launch on the North Shore is 11 miles away at Cates Park. Horseshoe Bay area is also 11 miles from Ambleside.

The Ambleside area has an excellent fishery which has been fostered by the Capilano Fish Hatchery over 50 plus years.

Closure of the ramp to trailer access for small vessels would preclude access to this precious resource, as well as access for recreational boaters.

The District of West Vancouver should have a responsibility to provide access to the water for these user groups.
