The City of Richmond has reinstalled commemorative signage at landmark locations throughout the city to serve as backdrops for grad photo opportunities. The signs, which were introduced in 2020, serve to promote and safely celebrate the achievements of grads in Richmond.

The commemorative Grad 2021 signs are in eight locations:

• Garry Point Park (12011 7th Ave.) east of the Steveston Fishermen’s Memorial along the south side of the park

• Imperial Landing Park (4000 Bayview St.) east end of Imperial Landing

• Paulik Neighbourhood Park (7620 Heather St.) Paulik Park garden

• Garden City Community Park (6620 Garden City Rd.) north side of the pond

• West Dyke Trail at Terra Nova Rural Park (2340 River Rd.) north of the Adventure Playground

• Middle Arm Greenway (6111 River Rd.) in front of the volleyball courts

• King George Community Park (4100 No. 5 Rd). east of the Cambie Road parking lot

• McLean Neighbourhood Park (2250 McLean Ave.) adjacent to the Great Blue Heron public art work.

The signs are part of the larger #RichmondHasHeart campaign, which provides creative opportunities to bring the community, residents and businesses together throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.

Grads are reminded to follow public heath guidelines when visiting city parks and taking photos, which includes maintaining physical distancing and avoiding gatherings by limiting the number of people in the group to a maximum of 10 at a time. Grads are also encouraged to share their photos on social media using the hashtag #RichmondHasHeart.
