Need for Green

Granville Island didn’t have any green space until the 1970s. The “Mound” in Ron Basford Park was actually a large pile of fill and concrete that was cleaned up from the rest of the Island during redevelopment. The area was then covered with topsoil and grass, resulting in the green oasis we know today.
