Steve MacLean Park now officially open – Photos!

Last Sunday, September 22, 2019, former astronaut Dr. MacLean officially opened the new outer space themed play structures in Steve MacLean park off Fisher and Meadowlands. Dr. MacLean, who went to school at Fisher Heights Public School, impressed us all with his stories how he started to explore his own neighbourhood as soon as he got a bike when he was a young boy and about being at the space station eventually.

Here is a photo impression of this weekend’s opening. Something not many people may have noticed yet is that the ‘pebbles’ in the path on the south side (see photo above) actually lights up the path at night, like the starry nights we can observe from dark areas out side the city. There is a photo of that very cool pathway at the bottom of this post.

The pathway at night.It might be ‘calcite’ that lights up. Bring a flashlight and you will get even better results when you shine your light on the stones for a while

You can see more photos here on the shared drive of councillor Egli’s office.
