The City of Langley is in the early stages of planning for potential upgrades to one of its largest parks. City Park is home to both Al Anderson Memorial Pool and the Langley Community Music School.

Upgrades pondered for City Park following February open house

Potential improvements include artificial turf, new play area, more parking

City Park could soon receive a major face lift.

The City of Langley park, located on 207 Street between 48 and 51 Avenues,  might be in line for new artificial turf fields, new parking lots, a new field house and new play area for children.

The exact configuration has yet to be decided. The City is only in the initial planning stages, as public consultation and budget implications are still being discussed.

An open house held on Feb. 18 gave nearby residents the opportunity to view and provide feedback on concept boards for the park. The City will use that information in a consultation report and create an optimized park concept plan to present to council.

This comes after the recently completed Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan recommended “significant upgrades” to City Park, particularly to aging facilities — such as poorly draining sports fields and uneven surfaces on the lacrosse box — and underused facilities, including the horseshoe pitch.

So far, two options have been presented for feedback.

Option one includes up to two multi-use artificial turf fields (one is optional), a new field house, two new parking lots with a total of 125 additional spaces, an expanded water park, playground and picnic area, new batting cages and improvements to other existing facilities.

Option two includes one artificial turf field, a new field house, a covered lacrosse box, new batting cages, a “flexible passive use  and event space,” and only one new parking lot with 60 additional parking spaces, among other upgrades.

There will also be new pedestrian pathways, improved lighting and protection for Langley Creek involved in both options.
