Idea #14 - Design the expansion of Westminster Pier Park via a community-led process

Initiate a community-led design process to develop the plan for the expansion of Westminster Pier Park.

"We have an exciting opportunity over the next few years to see the expansion of Westminster Pier Park on our Riverfront. I want to ensure the community has an opportunity to play a strong role in designing this future park space."  Jonathan Cote

In 2012, the city officially opened Westminster Pier Park. Since that time it has drawn thousands of visitors, making it one of our city’s most popular parks. Over the next few years the city will be working with an adjacent development site to add an additional two acres to Pier Park. This offers us some exciting options for developing potential new park amenities and public spaces on our Riverfront that are fun and engaging for both residents and visitors. It’s also an excellent opportunity to initiate a community-led design process to help shape this new space. This will allow the community to take ownership and ensure this new riverfront park is something everyone in New Westminster is excited about.
