About this project

Spanning 86 hectares, Central Park features lush forests and trails, recreation and sports facilities, various park amenities, and hosts many community events. The City of Burnaby is creating the Central Park Master Plan (CPMP) as a long-term vision that will guide future improvements of the park over the next few decades.

The CPMP will be created in 2 phases. Phase 1 focuses on the planning and design of the open space located at Kingsway and Patterson Avenue. The key deliverables of Phase 1 include a one-of-a-kind destination playground, community plazas/event spaces, as well as washroom and concession facilities. This area is a critical gateway in the proposed linear park along the BC Parkway and has been identified as a priority for enhancement to create stronger connections to the community.

As part of our mission to create a vibrant and inclusive community hub, we invite you to share your thoughts and ideas to help shape the future of Central Park. Take the Phase 1 survey before June 30, 2024.

It will be managed in accordance with s. 26 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. All personal information collected through this survey will remain confidential and de-identified when shared with the public. For questions regarding the collection of Personal Information and receipt of electronic messages please contact: Marketing and Corporate Communications at communications@burnaby.ca.

Central Park (at Patterson SkyTrain Station)

What's happening now

Site analysis has been completed and conceptual spatial program layout has been drafted. Public engagement on Phase 1 is currently underway. We're committed to making additional efforts to actively engage with residents and current users and gather feedback from community members. If you have any questions or feedback, please contact us at 604-908-0493 or centralpark@burnaby.ca.

Phase 2 will have a comprehensive planning process with multiple stages to cover larger and more complex sections of the park, including major facilities (i.e., Swangard Stadium and Central Park Outdoor Pool). The 2 phases will ultimately be consolidated into a single final document with an implementation plan.
