Despite all its small town charm, Point Roberts was far from sleepy in 2018. There were a number of landmarks and events to celebrate, both at Seabright Farm and throughout town. As we prepare for another busy year in 2019, let’s round up some of the highlights from the year that was:
Bald Eagle Golf Club Opens
The number of Tsawwassen peninsula golf courses was boosted by the re-opening of Point Roberts’ own golf club. Under new management and with a new name, Bald Eagle Golf Course welcomed golfers with refurbished links, updated facilities and a new Italian restaurant, adding variety to both the golfing and dining options available on the Point.
The support for local and sustainable food remained strong in Point Roberts throughout 2018. In May, the town kicked off another successful Saturday Morning Market season, giving local vendors, food producers, and artisans the chance to connect with customers and share their work. Community gardens and other greening efforts were in the news, and this year marked another instalment of the Point’s garden tour, which highlighted a number of standout residential gardens–always a point of local pride–around town.
Arts & Activities on The Point
August marked the return of the Point Roberts Arts & Music Festival after a one-year hiatus, and locals were once again treated to a talented roster of artists in a beautiful venue. This year also saw improvements to a number of local amenities and attractions, including the opening of a new library and the refurbishment of the boardwalk at Lighthouse Marine Park, making that outdoor destination more accessible for the visitors who come year-round.
2018 was also a landmark year for the Cottages at Seabright Farm. As lot sales and cottage development progressed, the seaside community has continued to take shape.
Highlights for our residents were the completion of onsite amenities like a heated pool and hot tubs, enhanced by a sprawling recreation area with picnic and outdoor kitchen spaces. We look forward to sharing them with future residents as well.
