Chester Johnson Park at YVR

Richmond, BC

Chester Johnson Park provides an arrivals and gateway experience welcoming passengers and visitors to our Pacific Northwest. The landscape thematics are inspired by the estuary landscape which connects to YVR. Dynamic paving, passenger canopy and lighting create flow and movement representative of water, while the shoreline is anchored by stone, driftwood and plantings.

In partnership, the Vancouver Japanese Gardener's Association has connected the Park and coastal theme with dramatic rock-work, dry stream, and plantings. Together, the composition provides place of respite while addressing passenger movement and access from the terminal and skytrain arrivals.
