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 early summer 2022.
