Belle Morse Park - Playground Replacement

The playgrounds at Belle Morse Park, located on 105 Avenue just north of Planet Ice, are being replaced as part of the City`s life-cycle replacement program.

Unfortunately, replacement parts are no longer available as a result of the age of the equipment, which has resulted in the equipment being taken out of service.

The new playground is designed for children aged two to five and five to twelve years and is located in closer proximity so that families can all play together. Some of the new features include accessible elements including “Arch Climbers”, “Wave Slides” and the “Spinning Sensory Wave Seat”. It is anticipated that the playground will be available for use by the end of January 2018.

Importance of Movement

Holiday Events

The two final Christmas special events, Canadian Pacific (CP) Christmas Train and Christmas Haven, were very well received by the community with record attendance and good sponsorship. The CP Christmas Train drew approximately 3,000 – 3,500 people despite the wet weather. The new decorated 224 Street “Candy Cane Walk” developed by Community Living, the Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association (DMRBIA) and the Food Bank was poplar with families to safely walk from the parking area on 224 Street down to the Port Haney train station. Additional road closures were improvements to help with public safety. This year’s food donation total was 1,975 pounds and the firefighters and public raised additional funds for our local Food Bank.

The Haven event, held in partnership with the ACT Arts Centre, served many vulnerable seniors, teens and families a free, non-denominational and accessible Christmas dinner.

New Public Art coming to Merkley Park/Karina LeBlanc Field

The Public Art Steering Committee has selected Glen Andersen, a visual artist, to create artwork to enhance Merkley Park/Karina LeBlanc Field through a limited call. The objective of the public artwork is to enhance the user, resident and visitor experience at the Merkley Park/Karina LeBlanc Field through the placement of a new piece of public art that celebrates active living, sport and history, including indigenous stories and place names. Andersen will be working with students from Maple Ridge Secondary School on the potential design and the work will be coordinated with the timing of the renovations at the park and field.
