About R.A. Nicholson Park
R.A. Nicholson is a 1.5 hectare (3.67 acre) neighbourhood park in the Strawberry Hill neighbourhood of west Newton. This park connects from 75A Ave down to the Strawberry Hills shopping mall and the Strawberry Hill Library. You'll find a playground at the north end of the park, north of 75 Ave, with a nice open grass area, pathways and the Strawberry Hill Hall in the portion of the park south of 75 Ave.
Strawberry Hill Hall
Strawberry Hill Hall was built in 1909. It is an excellent example of early 20th century agriculture architecture and serves as a testament to the success of the agriculture community in Surrey.
Construction of the new play area, and upgrades to the Hall have begun. The City will be working to move the Hall back from the intersection a few metres onto a new perimeter foundation and to renovate it as per a Conservation Plan prepared for the building. The program for the renovated hall will include Before and After School Care, licensed daycare and hall rentals for community events. The Strawberry Hill Hall project also includes construction of a new play area, which will serve the daycare as well as the public. The new play area will be located in the parkland south-west of the hall.
In summer 2019, we presented project information at a public Open House on June 20. Feedback was collected through comments forms at the Open House and online after the event.
