Fantasy Garden World, the Richmond theme park once owned by former premier Bill Vander Zalm and now fallen into disrepair, could soon be redeveloped.

Rick Ilich’s Townline Homes has received the unanimous support of Richmond’s planning committee for first reading of a request to rezone the site, at No. 5 Road and Steveston Highway, from botanical garden and service station to comprehensive development.

The 8.5-hectare site would be developed for multiple uses, including 550 housing units.

More than half the site is agricultural land and would be developed as a public botanical park and urban gardens.
