1600 Eastern Park

What's Happening Now

In January 2024, City Council directed staff to seek elector approval of a bylaw authorizing the City to borrow $1.9 million for the design and construction of a new park at 1600 Eastern Avenue, $4.3 million to build a renewed Kings Mill Walk Park, and $44.9 million for the design and construction of a renewed North Shore Neighbourhood House.

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've developed a new park 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. 

There is a temporary park space at 1600 Eastern Avenue until a permanent park can take its place. The current space includes a temporary community garden managed by the North Shore Community Garden Society, an off-leash dog area and community gathering spaces. 

Work on a permanent park is scheduled for later in 2024. Please visit letstalk.cnv.org to learn more about the process to date.

Final Park Plan

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

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.
