Kwantlen to sell portion of Paterson Park

February 7, 2012

Kwantlen Polytechnic University has decided to sell its 10-acre portion of Paterson Park in Ladner, BC. The university bought the land from the Delta Agricultural Society for $3.5 million in 1993 with the goal of building a campus, but the land has sat vacant ever since. Due to the declining number of graduating high school students in Delta, Kwantlen's board of governors and administration determined there was not sufficient demand to justify the development of a fifth campus. The decision was made to sell the land "so that it can be put to use by the new owner for the benefit of South Delta," says a Kwantlen spokesperson. South Delta Leader | Delta Optimist
