In April 2021, Council approved the final design for Sheffield Park and gave staff the go-ahead to proceed with tendering the 0.81-hectare (two-acre) park project near Chandler Street and Sheffield Avenue.
The park’s design – the result of extensive public consultation and feedback from neighbourhood residents – includes children’s play areas, a water play area, a youth area, rubberized fitness path, washroom, drinking fountain, all connected by an accessible boomerang-shaped pathway. The site will also offer free public Wi-Fi and beautiful views down Burke Mountain.
More information about the public consultation process for Sheffield Park is available on the engagement project page at letstalkcoquitlam.ca/sheffield.
The project design and construction funding will come from developer contributions and Development Cost Charges associated with development in the neighbourhood.
Construction is currently underway. Anticipated completion is summer 2022.
