Parkland donated to RD

Six acres of property to be turned into a park

  • Jul. 6, 2016 7:00 p.m.

The Comox Valley Regional District received a gift estate of six acres of property on Treherne Road in Area ‘C’ as well as a cash donation of approximately $50,000 on June 28, 2016 by the late Mark Musick Krotter.

The park will help preserve natural areas in the neighbourhood and act as a greenway connection between Treherne Road and Bishop Road. The greenway connection is officially a public trail and the remainder of the properties are public park space.

Krotter worked most of his career as a prosecutor in Calgary and Vancouver and spent weekends and holidays at his second home in the Comox Valley. He requested in his will that the new park created from his bequest to the CVRD be called “Jack Shark Park” in memory of his close friend and neighbour, Jack Shark.
