Garden City Lands Legacy Landscape Plan | Richmond, Canada | PWL Partnership Landscape Architects

         06-Southern-Boardwalk-Frames

The unique character of the land, its ALR designation, and input from the community provided the basis for the Garden City Lands (GCL) Legacy Landscape.  After being used as a rifle range in the early 1900’s and housing National Coast Guard communication towers in the later part of the century, this extraordinary 136 acre site located in the heart of Richmond, B.C. has remained predominantly unused.  City Council made a landmark decision to purchase the site from the Federal Government in 2010 to serve as a community amenity.  The resulting Legacy Landscape plan combines: sustainable, small-scale agro-ecological approaches to crop production; engaging, research-based approaches to conservation; community uses that promote intergenerational health and wellness; and the creation of a cultural landscape identity.  Rather than compartmentalizing these potentially divergent land uses, the Legacy plan and framework blend them, with each enhancing the other towards the creation of a truly dynamic and multifunctional landscape.
