Will this development result in a loss of parkland for the Burquitlam neighbourhood?

No - it will bring a net increase of about a half-acre of park space to the area. The project will see 1.5 acres retained at Burquitlam Park as public open space. At the same time, the City is obtaining 2.55 acres of additional parkland adjacent to the existing Cottonwood Park, which almost doubles its size.
