PROJECT UPDATE: Thank you for your input on the design options for the park. Please review what we heard from our second phase of public engagement: Public Engagement #2 What We Heard




Help Us Design a New City Park!

We're creating a brand new park at 1600 Eastern Avenue. Together we can design a park that reflects the needs of the East Central Lonsdale neighbourhood and provide new creative programming opportunities.

In September we asked residents to share their ideas for the new park. What we heard has helped shape two preliminary design concepts.

Background

In conjunction with the 2018 rezoning at Eastern Avenue and East 17th Street for a residential high rise rental development, City Council endorsed the acquisition of a 0.2 hectare parcel at 1600 Eastern Avenue for a new park. The size of our new park site is approximately the size of a small neighbourhood park, where community members would be able to walk to using Eastern Avenue or visit the park from Lonsdale from 17th Street. The laneway would likely be a secondary park entrance. Currently the site is being used as a construction staging area for the new residential high rise on 17th Street. Some of the key features of the new park site are good sun exposure and limited views to the mountains.
