A large sign has been posted on the site of the old zoo off Rutherford Road. Sign says that they are starting with developing park, trails and wetlands in Sept 2010, with subdivision development starting in the Spring of 2011.
Nice map shown and their website is www.LinleyPoint.ca
The website is still under development but some info available.
aaaaaaaaah, now that puts it in to persepective. I still have yet to go there, because I get confused anytime I get close to it.... Thanks for sharing the photos... For some reason, I was imagining the railings looking different!

An article in the Nanaimo Daily News today (http://bit.ly/dMJsD5) has brought our old zoo back into the public view. Lots of information in there that we've discussed here (and I see they used my image of the zoo postcard too).
I've been reading up a little bit on this since yesterdays news. Not sure if this has been shared, (didnt go through every page on this post) but I found a little bit more detail about this in a Nanaimo book. here's the link. Check it out... and again sorry if someone has already shared this information.
It all starts if you scroll up to, "Originally, Hertel"
