Caption from metadata: "Carlos Almengor isn't about to let a few inches of snow keep him from getting in a few kicks at the soccer ball in Burnaby's Central Park. He's originally from Panama, and he says the biggest challenge is getting hit foot under the ball after it has sunk into the snow."

Heritage Value
In 1860, as the Royal Engineers constructed the road from New Westminster to Vancouver (now Kingsway), a military reserve was set aside at the trail's highest point along the ridge. This reserve provided a particularly good scenic look-out since the original forest had burned down prior to 1860, the remaining stumps offered unobstructed views. By the 1880s, the city council of both New Westminster and Vancouver eyed the reserve as potential recreation ground. As construction of the tram line was underway, the Provincial Government moved to designate the whole reserve as a park. On January 14, 1891, the Lieutenant Governor of British Columbia proclaimed it as a public recreation ground.
