1600 Eastern Park

We’re building a temporary park space at 1600 Eastern Avenue for the interim until the installation of the permanent park. Work on the permanent park is scheduled to begin in 2024. In the meantime, we’re animating the space with a temporary community garden, off-leash dog area and gathering spaces for everyone to enjoy. The community gardens will be managed by the North Shore Community Garden Society. Thank you for your patience while we construct this new temporary park space, which is scheduled to be complete later this summer.

One of the goals of the City’s Park Master Plan is that all City Residents are within a 5 minute walk from any park or public open space. 

To help achieve this goal, we are creating a new neighbourhood plan at 1600 Eastern Avenue. This plan reflects the needs of the East Central Lonsdale neighbourhood and provides new creative programming opportunities for our community.

With the help of community and stakeholder feedback, we’ve developed a final concept plan.

The plan includes:

  • A circular covered canopy with hammocks and porch swings hanging from underneath
  • Small playful features such as an in ground trampoline, water feature, and climbing boulders
  • Dense planting of trees that form a green canopy overhead
  • Pollinator meadows at the park entrance
  • Fenced dog area with water fountain and play boulders

Final Design Concepts

Here are a few concept images highlighting park design and features.

About the Park

In 2018, the City acquired a 0.2 hectare of land that became available due to a rezoning. Essentially a 'blank slate', this space allows us to start from scratch and create a new park that is shaped by the voices of our community.
