Here’s a few pics from the beginning of the whole project from another of our Roving Bloggers - Linying Zhu. Linying is also a park assistant volunteer. Volunteers tend to have many roles and help each other out.
Linying translated this post into her first language so the chinese community can enjoy reading about the Granby Park Stories.
It’s the launch of Granby Park tonight so it’s timely to see how people have transformed the space in less than 6 weeks.
During the past few months, a group of enthusiastic people has devoted their continuous inspiration, wisdom, and hard working to the construction project of Granby Park, which makes the opening possible. Sincere thanks to all of them!
Have you read the updates on our official website, Facebook page or Twitter? Do you know how much the vacant site has changed in such a short time? As the great work is nearly finished, let me take you to review the progress of Granby Park day by day, little by little in the latest two months.
11 July, the original look of empty wasteland.
29 July, the building started!
1 August, new surface was laid down and the ground became much flatter.
2 August, sand was spread over the hardcore.
10 August, grass sods saved from a neighboring road construction were placed on it.
14 August, polytunnels were built up!
17 August, the park was nearly shaped!
20 August, the building is still going on!
Let’s count down and together enjoy the opening of Granby Park!
I believe you’ll have an exciting and amazing experience this summer from here!
