Million Dollar Park opens in Richmond

A new playground in Richmond is capturing the imagination of kids and adults.

The play environment is inspired by its environment–the “intertidal foreshore, dykes, remnant sloughs, and past and present agricultural use,” of the parkland on a middle arm of the Fraser River.

That design includes an incredible spiral slide, a treehouse, meadow maze, zip line, and a “log jam” climbing structure that is meant to be like the classic West coast experience of walking on logs.

This new park is located in Terra Nova Park in the northwest corner of Lulu Island, at the west end of River Road in the Thompson area of Richmond.

Check out a few images of the playground.
