Sheffield Park – Planning Begins

The City of Coquitlam is encouraging Burke Mountain residents to weigh in on options for a new neighbourhood park. Sheffield Park is approximately 2 acres in size and is located at the heart of the Smiling Creek neighbourhood at Sheffield Avenue and Chandler Street.

The survey – which will open later in August – will prompt feedback from residents on features such as:

  • A water play area;
  • A washroom building;
  • A play area for younger children (ages two to five) that could include a dome play structure, slide and sand pit;
  • A play area for older children (ages six to 11) that could include a larger play structure, swings and slide;
  • A multifunctional youth area (ages 11 and up) that could include a basketball hoop, ball hockey net, skate area and terraced seating;
  • Table tennis for youth, adults and seniors;
  • A pathway system with several cardio walking circuit options;
  • Open lawn areas for picnicking and other informal uses; and
  • Gathering spaces, seating areas and a terraced lawn area.

Public feedback collected will inform the park’s detailed design, which will be developed over the fall and presented to Council for approval ​in early 2021. Construction is anticipated to begin in ​Spring 2021.
