Waterfront walkways, lookout points, grassy mounds, play elements, an inter-tidal lagoon and shoreline restoration are all features of a new community park being proposed at a new development in town.
Located on the south east side of the Mamquam Blind Channel and across from the downtown core, Waterfront Landing is a new residential subdivision being developed by Bosa Properties.
The former Intefor mill site, 21.5 hectares in size, will include approximately 900 condos and townhomes.
Bosa also plans to feature a waterfront park, public plaza with amenities, shops, cafes, extensive trails and pedestrian corridors.
According to Bosa, the proposed Waterfront Park will be a major multi-use park and will be located at the North West portion of the neighborhood.
It will be adjacent to the Mamquam Blind Channel with views of the Squamish Chief and the downtown core.
The park features a tidal lagoon area that is the main feature at the south end, providing additional opportunities for environmental enhancement and access to the water edge.
Informal lawn area, look out points, perched beach, shoreline trail are other proposed features.
Two major pathways are provided within the park – one follows the water edge and the second along the residential areas.
The park design also provides a mix of open space areas and public gathering places.
Bosa is also proposing a pedestrian bridge pedestrian bridge to connect the downtown to Waterfront Landing at the end of Victoria Street.
Council adopted the Waterfront Landing Sub-Area Plan in September last year.
