Richmond residents are being asked for feedback on the revamping of three of the city’s older playgrounds. 

The City of Richmond is this year planning to makeover Heather Dolphin Neighbourhood Park at 9260 Dolphin Ave., Great West Cannery Park at 12691 No. 2 Rd. and Odlinwood Neighbourhood Park at 10811 Shepherd Dr. 

The parks were constructed in the 1990s and may need to be brought up to date for safety reasons. 

According to each park’s information boards, some common challenges are the playgrounds’ pea gravel surfacing not being universally accessible or the playground amenities having limited play value for specific ages and groups. 

Through redevelopment, the city hopes the playgrounds can have a play space that is more appealing to a broader range of ages and abilities.          

Richmond residents can provide feedback on LetsTalkRichmond.ca, and their thoughts will be taken into consideration for the future design of the selected playgrounds.  

The survey ends on Sunday, Feb. 12.
