Delair Park vs. Willband Creek Creek: 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.

There were some issues with posting this bracket. Results will be tabulated later Monday, so vote early.

Delair Park vs. Willband Creek Park

8. Delair Park features the city’s premier baseball field, but that’s not all this park has. Along with two soccer fields of dubious quality, Delair has a smaller diamond for kids and a playground. The park is also surrounded by farmland that, one day, could be the site of a larger sportsfield complex – if the province gives the go-ahead and the city decides to pursue the idea.

9. Willband Creek Park is a classic prairie wetlands. Like Fishtrap Creek, the park serves as a stormwater detention facility – a practical purpose that also allows wildlife to flourish and park goers to enjoy some of the best scenery in the city. Big enough to take some time to navigate, trails that loop two main ponds provide a unique place to get off the beaten path. MAP
