Deer Lake Park
Burnaby, British Columbia
Deer Lake Park, a 206 hectare park located at the centre of the City of Burnaby, has a predominantly natural character complemented with cultural, recreational and heritage amenities. The Shadbolt Terrace and Festival Lawn project has involved the renovation of a five hectare site between the Shadbolt Centre and Deer Lake. PWL Partnership is the prime consultant leading a team of civil, electrical and geotechnical engineers, as well as a heritage consultant. The work has included an expanded public plaza adjoining the arts centre. The plaza design has been integrated with custom design furnishings and public art. Improved park entry points are defined by custom design pylon features and discrete permanent fencing to assist with crowd control during events. The park path system will be improved and expanded; festival lawn seating will be expanded to accommodate concerts and events. The overall construction cost is approximately $2.8 million, divided between two construction phases. The first phase will be completed in January 2010 and the second phase before the summer of 2010.
