“Parks connect us with nature and one another, provide habitat and foster stewardship in our youth. By supporting Pacific Parklands Foundation we safeguard these valuable assets for future generations.”

Ryan Lee
Director At Large

“As the world becomes more digital and instantaneous, urban parks and green spaces play an increasingly important role in helping people find peace and calmness. As Thoreau said: ‘Live in each season as it passes; breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influence of the earth’. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with Pacific Parklands Foundation in enhancing our regional parks.”

Terri Van Sleuwen

“As a born and raised British Columbian, I cherish the green spaces that we have in our province that are so easily accessible, especially those that are close to the urban areas that some of us live in. I am honored to be part of the Pacific Parklands Foundation helping to enhance and protect our regional parks into the future.”

Janet Antonio
Executive Director

“I am grateful to live in a region rich in natural beauty and green spaces.  No matter how busy and hectic my life becomes I can always find peace, tranquility and beauty in a park.  My hope is to continue building on our legacy of Regional Parks for the enrichment of children of today and the generations that follow.”
