A fenced dog area, water feature and hammocks are among features proposed in a new park in the East Central Lonsdale being developed by the City of North Vancouver.
The new park is being developed at 1600 Eastern Avenue.
CNV says the new park fulfills the mandate of City’s Park Master Plan, which calls for a park within a 5 minute walk from any park or public open space.
The final concept plan for the new park includes the following:
Fenced dog area with water fountain and play boulders
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
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,” CNV says.
Work will begin in winter 2022 and is scheduled to be complete later that year.
