Ambleside Waterfront Park Implementation Project


Background

After an extensive community consultation process, and building on four decades of work from the community, previous Councils and staff, the Ambleside Waterfront Concept Plan was endorsed by Council on Monday, June 13, 2016. Since then, consultants have been working with Parks staff, stakeholders and advisory groups to refine and develop the park plan.

About the project

By balancing community interests and priorities, the plan expresses a cohesive vision that ensures something for everyone, more green and open spaces, and multi-use plaza spaces and infrastructure to provide for the community to enjoy the waterfront for what it is–one of the jewels of West Vancouver and the Lower Mainland.

This project will be built in sections and will likely take several years to realize.

We're excited to share the next phase of what's to come on the waterfront in the Ambleside area.

Report to Council | September 2019

Parks staff presented the Ambleside Waterfront Plan - Final Design Detail (PDF) report to Council on Monday, September 9, 2019.

The report strives to visually present the aesthetic look of the future Ambleside Waterfront Park when it is completed in its entirety.

The following was also presented to Council on September 9, 2019:

Additional community input

Staff now realize that calling the report and the plan the “Final Detail Design” may have created confusion with regards to seeking additional stakeholder input.

Staff will continue to seek further collaboration and input from key Ambleside waterfront stakeholders and additional community check-ins as the Ambleside Waterfront Plan progresses.
