Wondering if anyone knows when the cemetary that is being re-built beside the Epcor Rossdale plant is scheduled to be open to the public. I drive by there every couple of days and the area is looking better and better each time.

I think it is great that we are protecting the past. Without a link to the past you cannot build into the future. And it will make for something interesting to stop at and learn about when walking or biking in the river valley.

It is a memorial, not a cemetary and will be very much open to the public.

I believe it is the site of a native burial ground.

Now was there talk of closing down Rossdale? If that was the case that area would be perfect for a museum of some sort.
