50 International Students at Surrey Bend Regional Park

Jeff led a walking tour through Surrey Bend Regional Park for students enrolled in UBC's 2018 summer course Urban Landscape Architecture. He described how the transformation of the originally scarred site occurred while considering its larger context using long views and physical connections. Students were curious to hear how landforms define and create spaces. They learned that the park is designed to accommodate regular flooding while capturing most of the year's runoff in swales and wetlands, which also reinforce the site’s character.
