Point Pleasant Park Walk and Talk
Article by David Patriquin in the Halifax Field Naturalist No. 132 (September to November, 2008)
“In an evening presentation to HFN on June 5th, Peter Bigelow, HRM’s manager of Real Property Planning, provided an outline of the Comprehensive Plan for Point Pleasant Park. The plan was to be released for public review on June 25th. This talk was followed on June the 6th by an evening walk in the Park with Peter and Parkland Planner for HRM, Stewart MacMillan.” The article reports on the talk and walk.

Of special note: “Peter acknowledged the important contributions made- by HFN over the years. He paid special tribute to Colin Stewart who had come forth with pivotal ideas on how to approach the complex issue of managing recovery of the Park after Hurricane Juan in 2003, and who had shepherded the initial consultations prior to his untimely passing. Colin stressed the need for a multifaceted team approach and for the ensured preservation and enhancement of the Park’s natural and cultural assets.”
