We got this e-mail last week from Michel Desrochers of the Vancouver Park Board. It’s got important info about the future of China Creek:
The Park Board approved the “concept plan” for the upgrade to China Creek South Park in January 2007. At that time, the Park Board committed to host one more public meeting, so that you could view the detailed construction plans before a contractor is hired to perform the changes at the park (now planned for spring 2008). The meeting is scheduled for:
Tuesday, November 27th @ 7:30 pm
Mount Pleasant Neighbourhood House (800 East Broadway)
The detailed construction plans will show you:
A) changes to the skateboard area;
B) new children’s playground and nearby plaza;
C) new community garden;
D) new pathways and the new 10th Avenue bike path;
E) new landscape feature as a way to remember China Creek (the old stream);
F) other proposed park features.
We are in communication with the YMCA (operators of the Nanook Daycare) and may have plans at the meeting regarding the construction of their new daycare.
For project history, please visit the China Creek South Park website:
Please contact me if you have any questions.
