Bateman/Stoney Creek vs. Albert Dyck: Vote in our best-park bracket

This August, we’re showcasing local parks, and hoping you will tell us which is your favourite

Abbotsford is blessed with dozens of parks, some among the very best in the Lower Mainland. And although everybody loves Mill Lake Park, Abbotsford has dozens of other parks as well. Some parks you may have never heard of. Over the next couple weeks, we’ll be running a Final Four-style bracket that pits Abbotsford’s lesser-loved parks against one another. Proclaim your favourite park and see if you’re in the majority. At the end, we’ll set the favourite against Mill Lake and see if its backers can help it knock off the city’s crown jewel. At the end of the day, hopefully you will find a new park to explore.

You can vote below and on individual Park Vs. Park pages. Find those all here. You can also vote on separate polls our Facebook page. The results will be tallied separately, depending on where you vote. The winner will be determined by merging the two sets of results together.

For the first round, we’ll be posting two contests each day this week. Results will be tabulated next Monday.

Bateman/Stoney Creek Park vs. Albert Dyck Park

7. Bateman Park boasts three heavily used soccer fields, a clubhouse and a playground. Stoney Crek Park is adjacent to Bateman and includes a nice creekside trail along with a precious off-leash dog area. MAP

10. Albert Dyck is among the city’s most unique parks, even if its location can leave it forgotten at times. The park surrounds a manmade lake with a wakeboard/waterski jump. That park, crucially, is also the only place you can swim in a lake in Abbotsford. And although the lake has been closed in the past to swimming, the latest samples show the public beach to have some of the lowest E.coli levels of all outdoor swimming area in the region. A trail also rings the lake.
