    What project highlights are in store for the Hamilton area of Richmond?

    Dao asked 15 days ago

    Thank you for your question. At present, there are no major park capital projects identified in the Hamilton area; however, we understand that some of the existing sports amenities are showing signs of wear and tear. Parks Services is in the process of engaging of a geotechnical consultant to assess the condition of these locations, at which point staff will plan for future work and prepare a capital project submission for Council approval. In addition to the sports amenity assessment, ecological improvements to Hamilton Highway Park and additional tree planting at Hamilton VLA Park are currently in development and will be carried out in due course.

    Are there plans to add more waterfront benches on the boardwalk at Imperial Landing? Also with the increase of take-out dining, there appears to be a need for more trash bins.

    renneberg asked 15 days ago

    Thank you for asking. While there are no plans to add more benches in the Imperial Landing area, Parks will continue to monitor site usage and identify opportunities to add amenities that better serve the community where practical. We will pass along the request for more trash bins to the related department.

    Is there any chance that some of the ponds in Richmond could be stocked with fish, such as trout or small mouth bass?

    Jim Pook asked 16 days ago

    Thank you for your suggestion. While we enjoy wildlife sightings within the urban landscape, there are strict federal and provincial guidelines against introducing species of animals into human-made environments such as ponds. They may look suitable, but these environments may not contain the minimum habitat required for fish to survive. In addition to these issues, introducing wildlife to ponds in parks has the potential to create new conflicts for current park users and can make management of the ponds challenging.

    For the steveston dog park upgrade, will it be larger? I'm sure it would be welcomed to make it bigger as the population in richmond grows, and will there be lighting around the exterior? Youth party there in the nights and would deter vandalism (specifically broken glass)

    asagert asked 16 days ago

    Thank you for inquiring. While this has not been firmly established, it is expected that the dog park will be upgraded within the footprint of the existing park. Lighting will not be included as part of the project.
