What are the locations being considered?
We analyzed several parks in Hastings-Sunrise and found that Burrard View Park was the best fit for this project. Within the park, there are two possible locations for the garden: the North-West corner (labeled NW in this map) and the South-East corner (labeled SE in this map).
How did we arrive at these two options?
There are practical considerations that constrain where we can place this project. For example, some areas are too sloped for food gardening, less accessible for people with disabilities, or lack water access. Some designated uses (such as the playground, hospice grounds, or the dog-off-leash area) cannot be displaced for this project.
A first analysis determined that the South-East corner of the park would be a suitable place for this project. However, during Round 1 of public engagement, several members of the public asked us to consider a second option. The North-West corner of the park is the only other location in the park that may meet the practical constraints described above.
For more information on each option, please take our survey.
What's the best way to weigh-in on these options?
By completing our survey, you can help us to determine a location that meets practical constraints, and is best aligned with community needs. If you live in the area and are a user of Burrard View Park, please take our survey to share your views. (Note: The survey has closed as of December 6th. Thank you for your interest and please continue to check this Shape Your City page for more details.)
