The City of Surrey has opened a new park.

The West Newton Community Park, at 13008 59 Ave., is a 3.5 hectare green space with a playground, walking loops, shelters and Surrey's first cricket field with natural grass wickets – making it a potential regional sport-tourism destination.

The park's grand opening was celebrated Saturday (July 26) with cricket demonstrations, face painting, entertainment and other activities.
