She already refers to it as Meegan park… she is such a liar

 

What is interesting is that the name Meegan is relatively new. It was invented by Jimmy Fraser  about 75 years after the park was named Beacon Hill.

I thought it was interesting that yesterday on CFAX the chair of the CRD said that Victoria is in no danger of running out of water any time soon and that they'd even purchased another watershed area. So there's absolutely no excuse for all these horrible plantings we now have. Enough with the damn oregon grape.

Will the just-released Stantec safety report (that was kept secret from the public), have any bearing on the BHP sheltering court case on Monday?

Just to clarify, it was not released, it was leaked, and it was leaked in a draft form from September of last year. A year later it doesn’t sound like the actual report has been delivered. That in itself is very odd.

Know it all.

I am surprised so many peacocks survived the occupation of BHP.

I thought someone here a long time ago said this was gone.



Beacon Hill Park’s putting green has officially opened for the summer season, adding to the extensive list of activities on offer at “the crowning jewel” of Victoria’s parks network.

The City of Victoria announced the opening in a tweet Tuesday (May 10), inviting the public to bring their putters and golf balls for some free fun.

Beyond the putting green, the park’s 740,000 square metres also feature amenities like two playgrounds, two spray parks, tennis courts, a baseball diamond, cricket pitch, stage, picnic shelters, meadows, flowerbeds, and the Beacon Hill Children’s Farm.

Golf seems terribly "settlerish" to me.
