The Brackendale Farmers Institute Park

Situated on BC Crown Land in the unceded territory of the Squamish Nation, the Park is designated by the District of Squamish Official Community Plan as Greenway Corridors and Recreation. The park is approximately 50 acres of the forested area south of Brackendale Elementary School, west of Ross Road, east of the railway tracks and north of the Ross property on Depot Rd.

It is a second growth forest with a full stand of Coast Forest Zone trees, flora and fauna such as hemlock, fir, and cedar, aisles of alder and Canadian Maple, a lower canopy of vine maple, mountain ash, red osier dogwood, and salmonberry and a lush undergrowth carpet of bracken ferns, lily of the valley, western trillium and queens cup, to name a few.

Amidst this rich rainforest, the BFI has determined a section of the historic Pemberton Trail. With many hours of volunteer vision, labour, equipment, and supplies, this trail and extensions to it have become a treasured complement to the Squamish Trail System. As well, a large clearing has been cultivated and dedicated as use for community gatherings.

This land deserves to be preserved as greenspace in a growing community. Please support this park by writing to District of Squamish and the Province of BC asking them to secure the future of the park.
