Park Development Projects

Park Development
Parks, Recreation & Culture strives to provide residents with parks, trails and other recreation facilities that are:
  • thoughtfully designed
  • well maintained
  • meet the needs of our community
We do this by building new parks and improving our existing parks.

  1. Blaney Hamlet Park
  2. South West Haney Park
  3. Firefighters Park

September 2019 – Update

A contractor will be working to remove blackberries and to make improvements to the existing riparian areas. Two creek beds will be enhanced as well as native plants planted within the park area over the next 1-2 months.

Stay tuned for an official opening event to be scheduled once this remaining work is completed.

April 2019 – Update

The new neighbourhood park in the Blaney Hamlet area of Silver Valley is now open with final touches to be made in the coming weeks. Based on the top 5 amenities requested by the community, the park features a nature play playground, picnic opportunities, a full-size sports court, nature trail and an informal grass field. The play elements that are part of the playground include a rope climbing feature, spinning orbiter, natural climbing stump, water play channel and seesaw.  Thank you to each and every one of our neighbours who participated by providing feedback and engaging with this project. 

The final steps—scheduled to be completed in the next coming weeks—will be to install the water play feature, sports court lines and picnic tables shortly. Once the grass is established, the fencing around the field will be removed.

The Silver Valley Neighbourhood Gathering Place, which is a separate project, will have its own public process once the project is initiated.

November 2018 - Park Construction

Park Construction activities are continuing into Fall as the contractor is close to wrapping up their work on this new park. The playground areas, water and sand play areas, nature trail and sports court have all taken shape and are awaiting the final touches before the park is opened to the public. Stay tuned for a grand opening announcement in Spring 2019. 

Summer 2018 - Park Construction

Maple Ridge council has approved the construction of this new neighbourhood park in the Blaney Hamlet area of Silver Valley. Park construction is expected to start in July 2018 and be largely completed by November. Thank you to all the residents and neighbours who participated in the open house and online feedback forms to shape this park. 

October 2017 - Concept Plan

A concept plan (PDF) has been developed based on the feedback we received (PDF) at the previous open house and through the online comment forms.

As a part of our community consultation process we invited your feedback on the concept plan until November 19, 2017.

The Silver Valley Neighbourhood Gathering Place project, which is part of the recent Community Facilities Conversation may proceed once the results of the alternative approval process are available.

May 2017 - Open House

Parks, Recreation & Culture staff held a public open house on May 11, 2017 to gather neighbourhood input on this proposed park in Blaney Hamlet. Have a look at the Open House Boards (PDF).

A comment form was also available online for two weeks. Approximately 25 comment forms were received at the open house with 65 additional comment forms being received through the online form for a total of 90 responses.

Top amenities that were desired included a playground, picnicking, sports court, walking trails, grassed areas and small water play area. We are currently working on formulating a concept plan to share with the community in response to the many comments received.
