The future of Minoru Park is now being shaped, and the City of Richmond wants to hear from you.
Entering the second phase of its vision plan, officials hope to gain input on the future of Richmond’s signature, city centre park at two upcoming open houses:
•Friday, June 23 from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Richmond Cultural Centre (7700 Minoru Gate)
•Saturday, June 24 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Minoru Park (7191 Granville Ave.) on the north side of Clement Track.
The open houses will offer vision plan options, information boards, activities for all ages and the opportunity to speak with city park planners. In addition, the public can also visit LetsTalkRichmond.ca to find up-to-date information, view the open house boards and complete an online survey available from Friday, June 23 through Sunday, July16 at 11:59 p.m.
The 18-hectare (45 acres) Minoru Park has evolved significantly over time as community needs have shifted. While focusing on the natural park areas, the vision plan will reunite all the park features and amenities which include the recently-updated Latrace Field, a cricket pitch, and the new Minoru Centre for Active Living scheduled to be complete in 2018. The park also includes the Richmond Public Library and Cultural Centre, Minoru Arenas, and Minoru Aquatic Centre.
Feedback will build upon phase one that the public contributed to earlier this year and contribute to the development of a long-term Minoru Park Vision Plan that will be presented to city council for approval this fall.
