Background

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 Millennium Line Evergreen Extension 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 Town Centre Park 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. Recent and current projects are noted below (see Parks Planning & Construction for more details):

  • Festival Lawn Expansion – a Festival Lawn of approximately 8,000 square metres was added in 2019 east of the TD Community Plaza area, providing increased open space for festivals and events, as well as year-round casual use and programs. A variety of trees were also planted for aesthetics and shade.
  • Festival Hub – a new Festival Hub will open in summer 2020 between the TD Community Plaza and Festival Lawn areas. The hub will include a new washroom and servery building, a smaller plaza for additional social and gathering space, and further enhancements to the lawn, gardens, trails and lighting.
  • Lafarge Lake Loop – Staff will present a detailed design, implementation plan and budget to Council in summer 2020 for extensive improvements to the 1.2-kilometre lake loop and surrounding area. Spanning about 23 acres – about a quarter of the park – the project will allow parks users to experience the island for the first time, along with a wharf, new fully accessible pathways and gathering spaces, lighting, washroom, stunning floral displays and substantial new plantings of trees and greenery. Construction will be phased from 2021 to 2023.
