The Roxborough Greenbelt is 3 hectares of greenspace bordering Junction Creek in a downtown neighbourhood. After three years of community effort, the Roxborough Greenbelt became a natural park in 2009.
Friends of the Roxborough Greenbelt are neighbours and friends who worked to protect this special natural area, and now care for it with plantings and clean ups. We also get together for neighbourhood activities like egg hunts, Hallowe'en walks, and potlucks.
