Beckwith Area in Steady Decline

August 20, 2022

Had a look at the Beckwith area today. Have you heard about the duck pond that is about to be drained in Beckwith Park? I checked it out today. Really bizarre stuff from the looks of it and what the locals were saying.

Only a couple blocks from it was the Milner Ave tree massacre, where swaths of protected trees were bulldozed for development.

There was one deer there looking dazed and confused and a little skinny squirrel limping away from it across the road that one onlooker pointed out was a pretty sad scene.

In terms of natural habitat, the Beckwith Area seems to be in steady decline.

When will the public wake up from its slumber and realize that the growth model is an utter train wreck?
