Edmonds park to get new playground

Edmonds park is getting a new playground.

On Monday Burnaby council approved the awarding of a contract for $400,412 to Cedar Crest Lands (BC) Ltd. to build the playground, which will be installed on a rubber surface and surrounded by a concrete path. The money for the project will come from the city's capital reserves.

The new playground is the latest amenity to be added to the park, which used to be known as Richmond Park. A new plaza with staircase seating and a built-in speaker system will be officially opened on July 1 as part of Canada Day festivities at the park.

Other features that could be added in the future include an outdoor stage, spray pool, half basketball courts and a walking circuit.
