The City of Burnaby is developing a long-term plan to enhance the BC Parkway corridor from Boundary Road to the Royal Oak SkyTrain Station, referred to as Parkway Alive!

About this project

Following the vision outlined in the Metrotown Downtown Plan, the City is developing a plan to transform the BC Parkway in the Metrotown area into a vibrant linear park that could feature lively public spaces, opportunities for recreation, commerce, art and other amenities that reflects the needs and aspirations of the community. The project area is between Boundary Road and the Royal Oak SkyTrain Station.

BC Parkway

BC Parkway is a 26-kilometre, multi-use path that follows SkyTrain’s Expo Line, from Vancouver to Surrey. It was established as a regional amenity by BC Transit as part of the Expo SkyTrain Line. The corridor is owned by BC Hydro with several legal encumbrances in favour of regional entities and utilities, including TransLink for the Expo Line and the BC Parkway pedestrian and cycling paths.

Recognizing its significance to the City and the Downtown in particular, the Metrotown Downtown Plan (2017) identified the need to develop a unified urban design approach to address the aesthetic and functional requirements of integrating the Parkway with Beresford Street and Central Boulevard.
