Holland Park

As I tweeted earlier today, Holland Park in Surrey (between King George SkyTrain and Central City) was designed by the same people that did the Langley City Spirit Square band shell in Douglas Park. Douglas Park has a multi-phase plan that was developed as part of the Spirit Square design process. It would see water-features, a more formalized structure to the park, and strong tie-ins with the Fraser Highway One-way section. Sadly the City of Langley doesn’t have any current plans to “finish” Douglas Park. This is different than Holland Park in Surrey

It would seem Surrey did the opposite of Langley City and designed the park, then added the “spirit square”. It was impressive to see the amount of people that where using Holland Park for more than accommodation. It is a great urban park. Today was the first time I actually walked in the park, though I saw its construction almost from start to finish while riding the SkyTrain every weekday. Enjoy the photos!
