The team at the Greater Victoria Greenbelt Society is very busy getting ready for a number of important deadlines.
Nov. 7 the District of Highlands will be making their decision on the level of funding they will be providing for the Mary Lake park initiative.
The Friends of Mary Lake have been gathering signatures from Highlands residents (over 200 so far from the 800 Highlands households) to give the council an indication of community support.

If you are a Highlands resident please spread the word locally and help the FOML get signatures for this petition. Contact: Evelyn Samuel  [email protected]

Nov. 9 the CRD (Capital Regional District) board will be making their decision on the level of funding they are committing to the purchase of the trail corridor at Mary Lake.

The Intermunicipal Advisory Committee on Disability Issues, (I.A.C.D.I.) is acknowledging support for our efforts towards securing the Mary Lake property as a park.

“Since the creation of the User Friendly Trail Guide, I.A.C.D.I. has been seeking another ‘user friendly’ trail in the Highlands. The Mary Lake property is just what we have been looking for and requires little to no alterations to make it inclusive to everyone.”

Mary Lake Supporters Survey

Instead of trying to be mind readers we decided to create this survey.
Your feedback helps us to make sure we are supporting your ideas about the Mary Lake park.

​Past Donors:

Your past support has made this initiative possible. If you contributed to our previous campaign and have any questions about it please contact us at [email protected]. In many cases we were not provided with sufficient contact info so we would love to hear from you.
