Plant materials include indigenous species as well as specimens salvaged from the previous site development.
The site remained largely undeveloped since the original settlement in the late s and presented the opportunity to create a unique public open space for exploration and learning. PWL Partnership was hired by the City of Richmond as the lead consultants to develop a master plan and to oversee phased implementation. The project included an extensive public consultation process and involved a diverse team of sub-consultants in the areas of public art and interpretation, environment, heritage, public consultation, cost estimation, archaeology and engineering.

Inspired by the legacy of the Wallace Shipyards, the rezoning plan for Versatile Shipyards paid reference to the past yet satisfied the needs for creating a sustainable, meaningful place for the future. New uses proposed for the site included a hotel, commercial and residential development.
As part of a multi-disciplinary team, PWL Partnership was responsible for the open space design that focused on the heritage value of the site. Rich with characteristic shipyard structures, unique artifacts and details, PWL developed a concept plan that integrated both the old with the new. As part of the interpretive program, it was intended that Versatile Shipyards continue with the tradition as a work yard with a presence that could be felt throughout the community. At PWL, we recognize the importance biodiversity brings to the landscape.
That is why it is important to deliver great outdoor space that is mindful of all species. Here are 40 birds that can be found within in our lower mainland projects. Over the years, PWL has supported numerous projects in Stanley Park that have contributed to its environmental restoration and landscape legacy.
