PFS Studio and the City of Surrey’s Nicomekl Riverfront Park Management Plan has been awarded the Planning Institute of British Columbia (PIBC) Award of Excellence in Planning GOLD in the category of City & Urban Areas.
The Nicomekl Riverfront Park Management Plan is a bold, adaptive management plan for a unique collage of riverfront parkland in Surrey. Combining numerous disciplines and strategies, it sets the vision and future for a resilient, diverse and collaborative gem in the overall City park network. The plan balances biodiversity, ecological protection and enhancement with public access to, along and on the river while integrating public art, heritage, recreation, education, Indigenous stories, and sea level rise throughout. The plan is a long-range vision for the riverfront and designed to be a living document throughout all phases of park planning, design, construction and management.
