Town Centre Park Master Plan

Town Centre Park is one of Coquitlam’s largest urban parks at 42 hectares (103 acres), developed to serve both the City Centre neighbourhood and act as a City-wide destination park while also drawing visitors from across the Tri-Cities area. Given the anticipated growth in the City and the opening of the Evergreen Line in 2017, renewing the vision and the overall development plan for this important park is a significant step to maintain the quality of outdoor offerings in the park. The final TCP Master Plan will provide a practical community based vision and guiding principles, illustrative conceptual plans for future improvements, and a phased construction strategy to implement developments to park over the next 15-20 years.

Town Centre Park Master PlanImplementation

Implementation of the Town Centre Park Master Plan is underway. Current projects include: 

  • Festival Lawn Expansion - a Festival Lawn to be located to the east of the TD Community Plaza area will cover approximately 8,000 square metres. The new area will increase the open space to support festivals and events, as well as provide additional lawn space for both casual and programmable space that is usable all year. A variety of trees will be planted to provide both aesthetic improvements, as well as shade. Construction is anticipated to start in January 2019 to be completed for the summer event season.

    *Note that this project will require the removal of the existing BMX track, as noted in the TCPMP. The City will be exploring opportunities for other off-road cycling amenities when updating the Off-Road Cycling Strategy, as called for in the Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan.
  • Festival Hub ​- a Festival Hub to be located between the TD Community Plaza and Festival Lawn areas, and adjacent to parking, will include a new washroom building. The hub will also include a smaller plaza area that will provide additional social and gathering space at a smaller scale and in a more intimate setting. Construction of washroom building is anticipated to start in July 2019, pending Council approval of the detailed design and final budget.
