Ducks in the creek!

With all of the construction going on in Birch Glen Park and the creek area, it is heartening to see a pair of ducks swimming in the creek.

Update on Kos Blvd Culvert

Work is continuing on the reconstruction of the culvert on the western arm of Kos Blvd., as shown in the accompanying photos. It is messy, and part of the road is still closed. However, we are hopeful this will  improve the stability of the culvert as well as the flow of the creek.

They appear to be dredging the floor of the culvert at the moment, judging by the amount of mud there is piled on the sidewalk. As well, the ground on top of the culvert has been cleared of bush and scrub and some trees.

No word yet on the completion date, but winter is fast approaching.

Birch Glen Playground

Work has begun on the playground! The old equipment and surface have been removed. An additional play area has been created on the west side of the Pathway, and some super-looking monkey bars have been installed. At least one adult exercise station has been started. It is happening!

At the moment, the complete area has been fenced off while construction is underway. The photos show the progress. Please add your comments and any photos you may have taken as well.
