Coopers' Park is expanding

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.

What's happening
