About

Moore’s Meadow Nature Park

Moore’s Meadow Nature Park is a large glacial moraine kettle which formed after the ice age thousands of years ago and is today a place of community and refuge for families and dog-walkers alike.    

 

The park is the legacy of Mary Fallis, whose persistence and influence led to its creation in 1976. As a biologist, she wished to save this special and diverse place for the future. The signage found throughout the park will take you on a trip from the Ice age through to the present day. 

An All-seasons Place for People and Nature…  

The park attracts a wide variety of visitors, including people who like to walk, jog, watch wildlife and bird-watch. The colours of Autumn capture the eyes and cameras of photographers, and winter turns the meadow into a destination for cross country skiers and snowshoers. Off-leash dog walking, family photo shoots, cycling, and outdoor Christmas tree decorating are just a few more of the activities the park hosts for the public.   

As well as its Human guests, the natural habitat of the park is home to a variety of wildlife such as Black Bear, Moose, Mule Deer, Red Foxes, and Coyotes, among others.

Nature and Good Health

Visitors to Moore’s Meadow enjoy the benefits of increased good physical and mental health, unspoiled nature, restful reflection and happy dogs after a good off-leash run.  The benefits of fresh air and tree shade are enjoyed by many who cannot find it elsewhere in the city.  

The Future of Moore’s Meadow… 

IMG_0575.jpg

The future encroachment of residential development on privately owned land next to the north boundary of the park has park users concerned about the future and the possibility of losing part of the trail system. As well as this is the concern of the loss of the well-used and established green corridor that connects Moore’s Meadow Park with Wilson Park and the Nechako River. This sensitive animal habitat passage has been used by wildlife for hundreds of years prior to the gravel pit operations that have occurred in this area. If what remains of this passage is lost, wildlife movement from Moore’s Meadow Park through to Wilson Park and the Nechako River will also disappear, removing one of the last greenbelts of its kind in the city.

You are invited to sign our petition.  It is our plan to work with the private owners, the developers, and the city with the 2023 Overall Community Plan renewal to retain as much green space, trail access and animal security as possible.  This park is important for us to preserve for us today and into the future.
