Coquitlam Moves Forward on Rochester Park Design

by Kevin Henkelman |

COQUITLAM, BC, Tuesday, September 15, 2015 – The proposed design for Rochester Park, a partially developed 10-acre park in Coquitlam’s Maillardville neighbourhood, will now move forward for completion of detailed design.

At their September 14 Council-in-Committee meeting, Coquitlam Council reviewed new amenities for Rochester Park including water play, active play spaces and playground equipment for all ages and abilities; informal gathering spaces for family picnicking and recreation; and new trails and grassy areas. The park will also be supported by critical infrastructure to enhance access such as two parking lots, a washroom building, picnic shelter and pathways.

The proposed park design and programming plan responds to public and stakeholder comments heard last year as well as emerging community needs.
City staff will now work towards incorporating Council feedback and direction into the final detailed design and budget as well as review the design with key community groups and then present the final plan for Council approval in late autumn 2015.
