Dock Closed at Maquabeak Park

by GS GS |

COQUITLAM, BC, Monday, June 16, 2014 – Following recent damage to the City of Coquitlam dock at Maquabeak Park, the dock has been deemed unsafe for use and is closed.

The wooden dock was originally installed in 1979 and, as the only public boat launch facility on this stretch of either the Fraser or Pitt Rivers, has been heavily used by recreational boaters.

Consideration will be given to a range of options for repair or replacement with options and cost estimates to be presented to Council later this year. 

For the time being and the foreseeable future, the dock remains unusable.
