Good news for East Richmond

Good news for East Richmond

King George Park, at the corner of No. 5 and Cambie roads in Richmond, is a great asset to this community.

It is home to an excellent children’s playground, an exciting water park and an impressive Gathering Place. It is very well used equally by children, youth, adults and seniors. The crowd in the park, especially during the summer months, looks like a mini United Nations on any given day.

East Richmond Community Association has been informed by the City of Richmond, that city council has approved placement of an artificial turf in King George Park.

The work will begin later this year and hopefully, the turf will be in place before the year is out.

This is great news not only for the East Richmond Community Association/Cambie Community Centre but also for all of the residents of East Richmond.

On behalf of the East Richmond Community Association, I would like to thank the council and staff for this initiative. The newly laid out turf will be another jewel in this crown of East Richmond.
