Public input wanted for Agassiz’s new gazebo

The District of Kent wants you to help decide where it’s new gazebo should go

The District of Kent has been gifted a piece of silver-screen memorabilia, and now staff are asking for your help to decide where to put it.

The Republic of Sarah, a TV pilot that filmed in Agassiz in late March, has given the district the gazebo that was used during the harvest fair scene in Pioneer Park. Now, the district is asking for the public’s help in deciding where it should go.

There are seven potential places the Victorian-style gazebo could go, including four spots in Pioneer Park, one spot in Centennial Park, one in Schep Park and two in Valleyview Park.

The district has developed an interactive map to help the public visualize where the gazebo could go.

Once you have a place in mind, there is an online survey you can fill out, indicating which location is best for the new gazebo. If none of the parks strike your fancy, there is an “other” option as well.

The results of the survey will be presented to council on May 27.

To participate in the survey, visit, or call director of community services and projects Jennifer Thornton for more details.
