The tally now sits at six - and who's to say there's not more to come.
Terra Nova Rural Park has its sixth award, this time it was the Innovation Award from the World Leisure Organization.
The city has received six major awards since 2007 for the innovative park, including provincial, national and international honours.
"This is a tremendous honour for Richmond and the community partners who work with us in Terra Nova Rural Park as it recognizes what a special place that, together, we have created in Terra Nova Rural Park," said Mayor Malcolm Brodie.
"Terra Nova is more than just a park; it's a community gathering place where history and nature come together with modern-day programs that ensure our city continues to be a great place to live now and in the future."
Founded in 1952, the World Leisure Organization is a world-wide, non-governmental association of persons and organizations dedicated to discovering and fostering those conditions best permitting leisure to serve as a force for human growth, development and well-being.
Richmond was honoured along other local governments and organizations from all over the globe, which have found innovative ways to engage their communities in healthy and meaningful leisure activities.
Some of the community partners active in Terra Nova Rural Park include the Richmond Sharing Farm, the Terra Nova Schoolyard Society, the Richmond Food Security Society, the Richmond Nature Park Society and the Kwantlen Farm School.
The city is continuing restoration of a number of heritage facilities within the park.
