Silver Valley Gathering Place – Blaney Hamlet
The Parks, Recreation & Culture Infrastructure projects include a gathering place project in the Silver Valley area with the first being in the Blaney Hamlet neighbourhood. Additional land was acquired in 2020 to support this initiative. This first gathering place is proposed to be located adjacent to the new neighbourhood park on 230A Street.
In addition to developing a gathering place at this location, the City is exploring developing youth action amenities along with a bike skills park as a sponsored feature. We would like to hear your thoughts on desired amenities and programming for the gathering place, as well as to hear what kind of youth action amenities may be desired.
Due to Covid-19 we are encouraging residents to review the project information panels and submit an online comment form to leave feedback regarding this project. We would appreciate your feedback by August 16, 2020.

June 2019 – Concept and Comment Form (NOTE: NOW CLOSED)
The Maple Ridge Parks, Recreation & Culture department is proposing to replace the hammer and discus throws facility at Merkley Park. Through the Parks, Recreation & Culture Infrastructure process, which included community and stakeholder engagement, the need for track and field facility upgrades was identified. These upgrades include additional spectator seating, a washroom/change room building, new LED track lighting and a replacement field throw facility. The need for a field throw facility at Merkley Park that meets completion regulations has been identified by the track and field community.
This new track and field facility is a replacement for the previously displaced hammer and discus throws area that was removed with the construction of the Karina LeBlanc Synthetic Field. This facility is proposed to be located on the existing grass field east of the new synthetic field and will include a connecting gravel walking pathway around the facility.
Please see the concept plan and the site context plan as a reference.
