City adds 500 acres to Green Zone

The Mayor announced today that the City would be designating 500 acres of park land to the Metro Vancouver Green Zone, which protects the area from development.

  1. Bothwell Park – 100 acres
  2. Crescent Park – 129 acres
  3. Kwomais Point Park – 16 acres
  4. Redwood Park – 115 acres
  5. Latimer Lake Park – 72 acres
  6. additional Campbell Heights land – 57 acres


The Green Zone includes all land in the agricultural land reserve (ALR), and also includes several parks that were initially so-designated in 1995.

  • Surrey Bend
  • Tynehead Regional Park
  • Green Timbers Urban Forest
  • Bear Creek Park
  • Nico Wynd Golf Course
  • Elgin Heritage Park
  • Sunnyside Acres Urban Forest

Still, there’s a lot of green spaces in the City that aren’t yet city property, officially parks, or protected under the Green Zone…
