CITY OF NEW WEST BEGIN ARDUOUS TASK OF CLEANING UP THE QUAY?
Appears the City took the request to heart as the railing are being power-washed now that the water restrictions have been lifted. As of October, people can touch and lean on the white, clean railings while admiring the mighty Fraser river!
Now that railings are being cleaned, the QCB hopes that a continuing maintenance plan for the additional repairs needed to the Boardwalk are now in place. The QCB has received a very serious report of a person injured on the Boardwalk from tripping over popped-up nails.
The Esplanade & Boardwalk are a City highlight and should always be kept in top shape as it is a tourist destination. We hope this is the beginning of a new life for this beautiful area of our city.
