Creekway Park

Creekway Park

Once a parking lot, Creekway Park is now a beautiful green space within the larger Hastings Park.

The park is now ecologically rich and provides safe and convenient pedestrian and bicycle connections to New Brighton Park, the waterfront, and the city bike network.

As part of this project, a stream that was once buried for 60 years is now uncovered. The stream now captures and filters storm water and provides a rich habitat for many types of birds, amphibians, and butterflies. The stream will eventually connect the sanctuary in Hastings Park to the Burrard Inlet through New Brighton Park.

September 9, 2013 – Creekway Park is complete! The construction of Creekway Park has transformed the former parking lot into an ecologically rich and diverse creekside landscape. The park highlights how the daylighted stream connects the Sanctuary in Hastings Park to Burrard Inlet. It also improves pedestrian and bicycle access through the City, connecting New Brighton to Hastings Park and the adjacent neighbourhoods.

Connection to New Brighton Park and Creekway Park nearing completion

July 3, 2013 – The first leg of the daylighted stream in Creekway Park connecting the Sanctuary in Hastings Park to Burrard Inlet is nearing completion. Along with the stream construction, a new bicycle and pedestrian pathway system is being built to provide a safer, more convenient connection from Hastings Park to New Brighton Park. Currently the stream course is being planted and walkways are being paved, and we anticipate that the park will be complete in September of this year.
