Park Improvement Projects

Abbotsford Parks

The City of Abbotsford operates and maintains 70 playgrounds in our parks. In 2003, a Playground Replacement Program was put in place and, with the ongoing support from the Rotary Club of Abbotsford-Sumas, the City has been able to replace 12 playgrounds since that time.

In 2013, the City was awarded a Federal Government Matching Infrastructure Grant to replace 10 of its aging playgrounds. This funding has enabled the City to replace the last of its non-CSA compliant playgrounds. Playground structures in Larch, Southern, Glenridge, Charlotte, Everett, Juniper, Renton, Fairfield, Uplands and Jubilee Park were replaced, as well as upgrades to surrounding infrastructure were completed in March 2014.

New playground designs address inclusive play and serve children of all abilities. Replacing the old pea gravel surfacing with “wood carpet” not only provides better fall protection, but also makes our playgrounds wheelchair accessible. New protective fencing and asphalt pathways have been added at several of the playgrounds (where needed) to further enhance and provide better accessibility.
