History

The park was created in 1999 when the property previously owned by Jack Clark, who farmed and raised cattle in the area, was sold to Ducks Unlimited and the CVRD. Ducks Unlimited then leased the property to the CVRD to manage as a park. This property is located at an area important to the Lazo Marsh drainage.
