A small Sea Island park popular with plane-spotters is slated for “significant” upgrades, according to the Vancouver Airport Authority.

Flight Path Park, located along Russ Baker Way on the southern edge of Burkeville, will be subject of an open house on Saturday, Feb. 2.

Airport officials will be collecting ideas to reshape the park—an open space featuring a playground, benches and picnic tables. The park is situated directly underneath the flight path of the South Runway.

Upgrades are scheduled for this year.

The park last received a facelift in the fall of 2011, when dozens of akebono cherry trees were planted around the park’s pedestrian entrances and central plaza.

The open house takes place from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Jade Canoe sculpture in the airport’s International Terminal.
