Kimberley Nature Park plan updated

Revised management plan to be forwarded to Ministry after Council approval

The Kimberley Nature Park Management Plan has now been completed and will be forwarded to the provincial government for final approval. Kimberley City Council received the plan at their regular meeting on Monday evening.

The updated management plan came about as the provincial government offered the Nature Park Society a 30-year renewal on its license of occupation over the Kimberley Nature Park lands.

This is a significant time extension over the 10-year license the park currently holds says Coun. Kent Goodwin, a longtime member of the Nature Park Society.

The KNPS worked over the summer and fall updating the management plan.

“Kudos to the Nature Park Society,” said Coun. Albert Hoglund. “I was on Council when the Nature Park was first being discussed and we had to fight to get a five year license. Now it’s 30 years. That’s a big step in the right direction.”

Coun. Darryl Oakley, who sat in on the meetings as a Council representative, says he appreciates the diversity and work ethic of the Society members.

“There is pressure on all sides for use of the Park. They are respectful of all that and the Society works hard to find that balance.”
