ABOUT THE PARK

Roxhill Park is the headwaters of Longfellow Creek and possibly Fauntleroy Creek. The restoration of the wetland will improve water quality and steady water flow to Longfellow Creek, enhancing the Creek and improving Salmon habitat.

The community-initiated planting of this area will help restore a natural habitat and create a new educational resource. Instead of soggy grass, the park will become a place for people to go for relaxing walks, enhance their bird-watching skills, or just sit on a bench and enjoy the scenery.

Acreage: 13.4

HISTORY

Roxhill Playground became a park in 1955.
