Queenston Park Playground Construction Begins

by GS GS |

COQUITLAM, BC, July 16, 2014 – Construction will begin the week of July 21 on Queenston Park, a 1.37 acre (0.56 hector) new neighbourhood park that will service the Smiling Creek Neighbourhood in north east Coquitlam.

The innovative park design incorporates universal accessibility elements that will provide recreational opportunities for people of various ages and abilities within the paved pathways, open lawn, sport court, and playground areas.

The play area will feature a rubberized surface and a fun long slide which is integrated into the slope, as well as seating and socializing spaces. Riparian areas along the adjacent stream will be protected and restored with native plants as part of this project.

Queenston Park will be accessed from both Queenston Avenue as well as Princeton Avenue.

Construction is anticipated for completion in Fall 2014.
