Next steps

Phase 1 construction (Royal Avenue to Nelson Avenue) is expected to begin in fall/winter 2020 and will take approximately 10 months to complete.

The detailed working drawings phase is underway.

We are excited to share the park concept design with you!

The design captures ideas you shared with us at the last public meeting (in 2017) and in the previous survey (in January 2018).

Combined with input from the volunteer Horseshoe Bay Advisory Group, the updated park design features changes that address the needs of many park users.

The design is featured on page 5 of the document, however, we suggest you take a browse through all of the boards from the public meeting for a review of the:

  • past consultation feedback
  • site opportunities and challenges

    Why don’t we maintain our other parks instead that are in poor condition with this budget? Example: many tennis courts, washrooms at sandy cove, Caulfeild.

    Oxley asked over 1 year ago

    The District makes the effort to maintain all parks. Each park is assessed individually based on safety, use and if the park is meeting the needs of the surrounding community. All parks reach a stage where they require more than just regular maintenance and this is when we consult with the community and look into renewing the park. In the case of Horseshoe Bay Park, Community Amenity Contributions were collected from local developments that can only be used on this specific park and not for the maintenance of other parks.

    Hi. Is this revitalization being in any way funded by Westbank? How much of the design is ultimately to be decided on by Westbank?

    Cheryl asked almost 2 years ago

    The District is receiving Community Amenity Contributions from the Westbank development for the redevelopment of the park. Westbank has no decision making authority regarding the design of the park.

    Hi, Should the new West Bank residential and commercial condo buildings and open area as part of the design? Should the public dock is also part of the design? There are a lot of people enjoy the walk of the public pier, is the new design integrated with all these existing and new structures? Thanks

    Rick Wong asked almost 2 years ago

    Thank you for your inquiry.

    Yes, the new park design has taken into account the Horseshoe Bay Pier and the public realm areas of the Horseshoe Bay Residences development. It is anticipated that the park will mesh seamlessly with these areas to create a cohesively waterfront experience.
