LULU ISLAND MOMENT:

 

Pacific Spirit Park

On April 23, 1989 Pacific Spirit Park was named. The important part of this was that Richmond resident Sherry Sakamoto was at the ceremony because she had won the province wide competition to name the park, made up of 1,885 acres that had previously been part to the University of British Columbia Endowment Lands. Sherry explained the name “was inspired by the First Nations belief in the Great Creator and their connection with Mother Earth.. It is the gateway to the Pacific and a spiritual ground to becoming one with nature”. The park is the largest urban park in the world with 34 multiple use trails.
