There is a little nature park in the middle of the Mission, near the store where I work. My husband often picks me up after work and we walk our old dog there. I waited all winter for the beaver to emerge and I have been privileged to see him and her quite a few times now. The one time he was eating in the grass, practically a leap away, I had forgotten my camera.
Fascieux Park is really a cool little place tucked away behind the shopping centre.
