In 2018 and 2019, we held two public engagements on opportunities to expand the amenities in Coopers’ Park under the Cambie Bridge. Based on public feedback, we developed plans for a unique, pacific northwest themed fitness area to support parkour and calisthenics.
We also shared plans for a complete renewal of the existing playground. Developing under the bridge provides cover from the weather and the possibility for year-round use in a uniquely urban environment.
In addition to the fitness area and playground, we're now including a full renewal of the existing dog off-leash area, a new washroom, drinking fountain, and potential circulation changes to support these improvements. There will be further public engagement opportunities related to these additional features in early 2021.
