  • Observation says:

    Mill Lake is spoken about by city officials and councillors as the jewel of Abbotsford. While that parcel of nature may be beautiful it is poorly maintained, dirty and has become a drug den in the past few years. It is nothing like Stanley Park as Patricia Ross and Mayor Banman like to falsely claim.

    I was at the park recently and felt extremely unsafe.

  • Deceit in Drugs says:

    Spinning the Mill Lake image follows the big hole left, where the
    Mahogany Mill Lake Tower is supposedly to be built.

    Homeless/addicted and criminal element attracted to park from
    the malls, where they hang out and the notorious bus loop on
    Bourquin, where many delinquent teens hang out.

    Added to that, I’m told residents often hear arguing from
    ex-patients released from hospital, who are still intoxicated,
    possible mental health issues and no where to go wander down Gladwin into Mill Lake Park at night.

    It’s time for Police to do regular patrols in the park and around the park at night for sure.
