Rocky Point Park remains one of the most visited public spaces within the Tri-cities area and has been consistently used for wedding photos, family gatherings, and the civic Canada Day celebrations, which draws more than 100,000 people each year. It is located along the Burrard Inlet, and is the last surviving mud flat estuary in British Columbia. VDZ+A was retained to prepare a master plan for the renovation of this significant park.
The theme for park development was community heritage, railway, and waterfront. The resulting program included a new multi-purpose building with change rooms, daycare, and caretakers suite. In addition, VDZ created a regional waterpark with custom water toys and ‘green’ biofiltration of all waste water. We renovated the waterfront promenade and created a destination performance shelter. And, we created the playground and skate park areas as part of the active recreation zones within the park.
