WATCH: Beer cans, muffler found in Goldstream Park cleanup

Candy wrappers, string, plastic bags high on the trash list

Park rangers and volunteers, led by local resident Alenzo Winters, unclogged Goldstream Park Saturday, Feb. 2.

Armed with a $500 grant, Winters even shuttled volunteer labourers into the park by bus and offered lunch.

Among the cedars, volunteers cleared the park of trash in what “seemed like a fun way to spend a Saturday.”

They cleared candy wrappers, string, plastic bags, beer cans and clothes, alongside surprises such as a muffler and lawn chairs.
