PoCo, PoMo parks listed as great public spaces
What's on your list of favourite places?
Two Tri-Cities parks are fan faves after being nominated for the list of Great Public Spaces in the annual contest hosted by the Canadian Institute of Planners.
Confederation Park in Port Coquitlam, home of Canada Day celebrations, and Rocky Point Park in Port Moody, where the city's Centennial picnic and fireworks were held last weekend, are on the list this year. But there are numerous other nominees from all over the country.
Just three locations will be selected as the 2013 Great Places grand winners —one in each of the public spaces, streets, and neighbourhoods categories — based on both popularity and planning excellence as judged by a panel of experts.
In addition, there will be three People's Choice Awards based solely on the number of votes.
If you want to enter your favourite street, neighbourhood or public space in the competition, go to www.greatplacesincanada.ca to submit your nomination before the Sept. 2 closing date.
Voting will stay open until Sept. 23 and winners will be announced on World Town Planning Day, Nov. 8. Visit www.GreatPlacesInCanada.ca
