Larry Berg tribute and enhancements planned for plane-spotting park

At Vancouver Airport Authority’s recent Annual Public Meeting, held on May 9, chair of the Board Mary Jordan recognized Larry Berg for his achievements as president and CEO over the last 15 years. 

As a lasting tribute to Berg’s work to help develop YVR into an award-winning international gateway, Flight Path Park will be enhanced and renamed Larry Berg Park: A Celebration of Flight.

Flight Path Park is located along Russ Baker Way at the end of YVR’s South Runway.

The park’s new features will include a central plaza, enhanced pathways and an elevated platform for plane-spotting enthusiasts (see a schematic drawing on Page 3). 

An important community gathering place, the park will also celebrate YVR’s role in connecting people from all over the world with a central globe feature.

Upgrades will begin early this summer, with a grand opening slated for Fall 2013.
