Marysville Eco Park

As part of greater recovery efforts on Mark Creek, Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook established the Marysville Eco Park in 2004.  Once a gravel parking lot serving the Marysville Falls, Wildsight partnered with the City of Kimberley to excavate and restore the streambank, and to establish native tree, shrub & herbaceous plant species on the site.  Local sculptor Tony Austin created trout sculptures for the Eco Park, and signage and picnic tables were installed to invite visitors to the space.  It is only through the efforts of countless resident and student volunteers that the Marysville Eco Park is the verdant refuge it is today!

Every year, Wildsight Kimberley Cranbrook hosts Volunteer Workbees at the Eco Park to clean up waste, remove weedy or invasive plants, maintain signage and more to ensure the space’s inviting, natural beauty into the future.  If you’d like to participate in one of these events, please email us, and Wildsight will let you know of the next opportunity to lend a hand.
