Lendrum - Naturalized Area

Photo of Naturalized Area taken in October 2018

With the development of the Dry Pond on the Lendrum Athletic Field, came the initiative to develop a naturalized area. At the time of planning for the dry pond in 2007, the following was proposed to community residents:


"A wet meadow feature would be in the centre, between the playing fields. It would be slightly lower than the rest of the dry pond and be the first and last area to have ponding water. This would be a naturalized area suitable for outdoor classroom activities.

Lendrum Place Community Consultation concerning a Dry Pond next to Lendrum and Avalon Schools held April 12, 2007 at Lendrum Elementary School

The Naturalized Area is a great place to explore in any season. The photographs were taken on October 17, 2018.
