What facilities are proposed for the Cottonwood Park expansion?

The first phase of Cottonwood Park expansion was completed in 2019 and features a playground, water play area, as along with a youth zone and a picnic shelter with a supporting washroom building. As the park expands in phases, it’s anticipated that many of the active amenities within the existing Burquitlam Park will be moved to Cottonwood Park, such as the baseball diamond, natural grass field, as well as tennis courts. Additional enhanced park amenities are also anticipated at Cottonwood Park as it expands into a community level park.

Current timelines target early 2021 for the completion of the second phase of Cottonwood Park. Portions of the redesigned Burquitlam Park will also be open to the public upon completion of the YMCA facility in late 2022.
