Thornhill has bright outdoor recreational future

Pathways, picnic sites promoted

To the editor:

In regards to the story about Thornhill regional district incumbent Jeff Hammond that ran in the Sept. 1, 2022 issue of The Terrace Standard.

Jeff mentions a feasibility study for a multi-use path at the Hwy16/37 roundabout.

This isn’t something Thornhill people would use much. The majority of foot traffic comes from Ferry Island, heading to the old bridge or vice versa.

Thornhill residents are walking the access roads from Clark to the ‘Welcome to Thornhill’ sign, enjoying the Skeena River mountains.

Thee is a 10-acre park between the Costa Lessa Motel and the Copper River Motel needing outhouses, picnic tables and benches right there on the river front.

Less than one kilometre east is a rest area that needs enlarging as well as outhouses, picnic tables and outhouses.

There’s two kilometres of walking along the Skeena River both ways and need I mention the beautiful view on Old Lakelse Road across from Skeena Concrete of Sleeping Beauty, Thornhill, the Skeena River and valley?

The pull out and asphalt parking is there, just needs outhouses, picnic tables and benches.

Thornhill Landing on Queensway needs refreshing and signs installed at the roundabout. Great historical site.

Chris Glazin,

Thornhill, B.C.
