Residents invited to another meeting on new park in Clayton

Once completed, Surrey's Hazelgrove Park will be the largest in East Clayton.

A spray park, playground and walking loop are among the items topping residents’ wish list for Hazelgrove Park in East Clayton.

The items were among the top 10 features identified at a Sept. 10 open house and an online survey, according to Surrey Parks Planning and Design.

Including a spray park/splash pad in the new park topped the list, with 58 per cent of respondents identifying those features as a priority.

Washrooms were a close second, at 57 per cent, followed by a playground (54 per cent), walking loop (49 per cent), picnic area (40 per cent), nature/forest area, sports field, youth park and

tennis court.

A second public open house for the Hazelgrove Park project is planned for next Tuesday, when residents can review park concept plans and provide city staff with feedback, further refining the park’s design.

Hazelgrove park is part of the East Clayton Neighbourhood Concept Plan.

The site, located between 190 and 191 Street, north of Hazelgrove Elementary, will be turned into a community park with outdoor recreation facilities and greenspace, including features for team sports, youth and children’s play.

It will be approximately 3.5 hectares (8.65 acres) in size, making it the largest park in East Clayton.

The project timeline calls for the final park design being completed in spring 2014, with construction beginning next summer.

The Nov. 19 open house runs from 6-8 pm. at Clayton Heights Secondary School, 7003 188 Street.

Contact Parks Planning at 604-501-5050 or email for more information.
