Two parks left in contest to crown Abbotsford’s favourite; Round 4 bracket results

After four rounds, one park chosen to face-off against Mill Lake Park in final

Abbotsford is blessed with dozens of parks, some among the very best in the Lower Mainland. Over the last month we have run a Final Four-style bracket that pits Abbotsford’s parks against one another, with Mill Lake Park awaiting the winner in the final.

Voting again took place on Facebook and on our website. You can find past votes and results here.

Round 4: Sumas Mountain Park vs. Matsqui Trail Park

Winner: Matsqui Trail Park – 60%

Although we have one match-up left, this was, in many ways, the final of our bracket. It delivered a suitably unpredictable result. Matsqui Trail comprehensively thumped Sumas Mountain Park, both on our Facebook page and especially on our website.

Fishtrap Creek Park had received so much love through the first two rounds of our bracket that when Sumas Mountain knocked it off in round three, it seemed like the large mountain park would be the inevitable winner of the next vote. Matsqui Trail, meanwhile, had dispatched relatively weak competition through the first two rounds and just snuck by Bateman/Stoney Creek. Knocking off Sumas Mountain, which had previously ran through Willband Creek Park shows just how many people like Matsqui Trail’s extended riverside trails.

Matsqui Trail also enacted some revenge on Sumas Mountain for the larger park’s first-round massacre of tiny Matsqui Village Park.

We’ve thus far left Mill Lake Park out of our bracket because it seemed too unbeatable. But now it enters the fray for the final. Voting to crown Abbotsford’s favourite park will take place over the weekend.
