General Brock (Gary Allan) Lands

Why protect our green spaces and trees in Burlington?

For a compelling view and example, see the above aerial shot of the General Brock parkland in Ward 4. New Street is above the highlighted area, with Spruce Avenue below it and Pine Cove Road to the right/east.

Now, imagine those same lush open lands as a busy subdivision full of people, concrete and cars. With few mature trees.

That’s a major reason why.
