Residents of Richmond may now enjoy a beautifully designed, brand new park right in their own backyard.

One of the first urban parks to open in Richmond, Lang Park was in dire need of renovation.

The total cost for the park’s reconstruction was $920,506. It includes a newly imagined children’s play area with a water feature, public arts, lighting, upgraded facilities, new trees, groundcover, shrubbery, and even a reflexology path.

The new design ushers in a highly modern, inviting feel to the community. It is a welcoming space for children, promoting safe play and engagement with nature. Moreover, it gives a space for adults to connect in the outdoors and feel rejuvenated.

Lang Park’s official ribbon cutting ceremony was held on July 20th. Free Family activities and speeches took place to celebrate the occasion with Mayor Malcolm Brodie and City Council.

Lang Park is one of the City’s first urban parks, and originally opened in the late 1990s.
