Richmond seeks public input on Aberdeen Park Playground concept
07 November 2018
The City of Richmond is developing a conceptual plan for a new playground at Aberdeen Park and is seeking public input to guide the design.
Drop by the public open house on Saturday, November 17 from noon to 4 p.m. to view and provide feedback on information boards, a preliminary playground concept plan, as well as speak with City staff and project landscape architects and complete a survey.
The event will take place inside Aberdeen Centre located at 4151 Hazelbridge Way, on the first floor next to the BC Lotto Centre.
For those unable to attend the open house, there are still opportunities to get involved. From Friday, November 16 through Sunday, December 2, interested individuals can visit www.LetsTalkRichmond.ca to access project information, open house materials and complete an online version of the survey.
Information gathered during the public open house and on www.LetsTalkRichmond.ca will be used to develop a playground design that will be unveiled in 2019, with construction anticipated to start in the spring.
Aberdeen Park opened to the public this past summer, and is the focal point of the emerging Capstan Village area in Richmond’s City Centre. It offers rich green space, a vibrant urban square and areas for public gatherings, community events and arts and cultural activities. The park’s second phase of development will include a playground, stage canopy, public washroom and Zhengzhou exchange garden, and is anticipated to be completed in late 2019.
