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.

Updated Concept Plan Community Consultation Period


Throughout March of 2022 we asked the community to review the updated park concept plan for this neighborhood park and provide feedback. Thank you for providing your valuable feedback on the concept plan.

Based on what we heard we will be making some changes to better suit the park design to its neighbourhood context. These changes will include:
  • Removing the parking lot in favour of more open park space
  • Relocating the washroom building to the east side of the park, away from 241A St., for the privacy of residents and park users 
  • Scaling down the washroom building to a compact two stall, fully serviced and universally accessible facility
  • Adding lines for two pickleball courts on the multi-use sports court
  • Swapping out the proposed concrete hill slide for a more traditional plastic hill slide
Thank you for your participation in our community engagement process for the upcoming 241A and 112 Ave park development! With your feedback, we will move towards preparing the design for construction which is planned for Summer of 2022.

Updated Timeline


In Spring of 2021 we collected community feedback on the concept plan for a new park at 241A Street in the Albion area. 

From the neighbourhood feedback we received on the preliminary concept plan and to deliver a complete neighbourhood park with the full range of amenities requested to serve this area of our growing community, we recognized the park development funding would need to be bolstered to realize this greater park vision. With this in mind we are re-assessing the budget funding and have made an application for a grant towards the park construction. We are currently awaiting a grant funding announcement.

An updated concept plan will be shared with the community when the scope of the project has been confirmed. Construction is anticipated to start in 2022.

Concept Plan Community Consultation Period

The Maple Ridge Parks, Recreation & Culture department hosted the second phase of community consultation for the design of a new neighbourhood park at 241A St & 112 Ave.

Residents were encouraged to review the Park Concept Plan and provide their feedback from March 8 to March 22. This plan was developed based on the desired amenities and programming that came out of the first community consultation. Thank you for all the comments, these will be use to further refine the park design.

Questions and comments can also be directed to Melissa Coderre, Parks Planning Technician, at 604 467-7466 or by email to mcoderre@mapleridge.ca.



Community Consultation Results


Participants expressed that the park should be a space for youth in the neighborhood, with amenities for younger children and teens.

The top 5 amenities requested by you:
  1. Playgrounds & Swings
  2. Walking Pathways
  3. Open Lawn Area
  4. Picnic Area
  5. Basketball/Hockey Court
When asked to specify other amenities not listed on the survey, participants most often asked for the following:
  1. Water Play
  2. Features and design to increase walkability to and from the park
  3. Bike Park
  4. Safety features to secure the park
The next steps for our team will be to develop a park concept plan based on the feedback we've received. Please note that while all requested amenities will be considered, not all can be accommodated in the park plan.


Community Consultation


As part of the community consultation process we invited your feedback from October 1 to October 26, 2020. Through this time we’ve received nearly 140 comment form submissions. Thank you for your interest and feedback in this park development process.
