Looks like a checklist of places to visit in Canada. I’m going to see how many I’ve visited.

What is the prize, they get a professional real estate development and marketing team to build condos there or something ?

Odd list. Grew up in Burnaby and never heard of Paper Mill Dam. Guess not, it’s in Port Alberni.
Mill Lake park’s a great place to push Mom through the goose-shit in her wheelchair when we take her out from the home, and Surrey Central and Chow Main St. are weird entries too (unless you’re a junkie tourist).
I’ve been to the Farmer’s Market in Terrace. Not exactly a memorable park!

I think the khutzeymateen grizzly bear sanctuary should have been included in this.
