Save Hawthorne Park

First Major Rally

August 17th 6:45 pm

Our Lady of Good Council School Auditorium 10504 139th Street (enter from 140th Street)

Key speakers will explain what the city is planning to do to Hawthorne Park and along the 105 Connector Road. And there will be a question and answer period at the end of the rally.

There will be tables set up where you can fill out the Electors Response Form that the city is requiring us to complete.

There will also be packages that you can pick up that you can use to collect your own signatures.

Please invite all your friends. We have the momentum and City Hall is very concerned about us - and so they should be!

Hawthorne Park

 Hawthorne Park is a beautiful forested area in North Surrey. It is home to countless wildlife species and is an oasis for the community. The forested area is used by numerous people who enjoy its system of walking trails, and the park area is host to an abundance of social gatherings.

Hawthorne Park

The City of Surrey is planning to build a two lane road through the south end of Hawthorne Park. The road will start on the west side and exit on the east side and run parallel to 104th Avenue. The road will also disrupt numerous neighbourhoods and go through people's homes and yards.

Hawthorne Rotary Park Master Plan

Wildlife living in the forest will be devastated and several of the well-used walking trails will be replaced with two lane roads. No longer will we be able to watch the red-tail hawks fly overhead or listen to the barred owl at night. The roads will go right through their habitats. 

The area that the proposed road will go through has been designated as an ecologically sensitive area. But the city is planning to implement a bylaw to remove the park's protected status.

We need to preserve this forest for community, for future generations, and for the wildlife living there who have no voice to speak for themselves.

Please stand with the community and sign this petition.
