Community garden plans revealed

OCEAN PARK – Design plans for a new community garden will be unveiled on Thursday, Dec. 11.

The one-acre site for the garden and nature interpretation park, at the corner of 128th Street and 25th Avenue, is owned by Crescent Housing Society and has been leased to Alexandra Neighbourhood House for this project.

Funding to complete the facility is provided through the federal New Horizons for Seniors program and also Peace Arch Hospital Foundation.

Site-preparation work is nearly complete on the garden, which will consist of approximately 40 plots. The garden should be set to go by next April.

The project involves an “inter-generational” partnership between Kiwanis Park Place and Crescent Park Elementary. Volunteers and donors are sought to oversee governance of the garden.

The design-reveal meeting is at 7 p.m. Dec. 11 at Kiwanis Park Place, 12850 26th Ave.
