The City of Richmond is inviting the public to take part in shaping three neighbourhood park playground replacement projects.
The City’s parks and open space system provides over 80 playgrounds for the community to visit and enjoy.
The playgrounds identified for replacement in 2023 are:
- Heather Dolphin Neighbourhood Park at 9260 Dolphin Avenue
- Great West Cannery Park at 12691 No. 2 Road
- Odlinwood Neighbourhood Park at 10811 Shepherd Drive
These parks were constructed in the 1990s, and playground replacement is required to ensure that the City’s parks continues to provide safe, inclusive and enjoyable playground amenities.
From now until Sunday, February 12 Richmond residents are invited to visit LetsTalkRichmond.ca to learn more about each park, view photos of new ideas and existing playgrounds and provide feedback online.
The public’s feedback will help inform the planning and design of the neighbourhood park playgrounds.
Closure of the existing playgrounds for construction is planned to begin through this summer and fall, with completion anticipated in winter 2023.
