Sapperton Landing Park
New Westminster, British Columbia
Sapperton Landing is a 6.5-acre naturalized open space along the banks of the Fraser River in New Westminster. The theme of the park is to create a series of naturalized meadows, emerging forests and interpretive opportunities, which illustrate the natural regeneration of river marsh, riparian and upland habitat. The major achievement of the park was that the open space was created by filling into the river and rehabilitating the existing waters edge. Park visitors will be able to stop at the Coal House pier after they have bought fresh salmon from the newly rehabilitated fisherman’s docks. The meadows and rustic wood lookouts, which span the length of the park, are great places to stroll, relax and watch nature take hold and once again bring wildlife and native plants to this stretch of the Fraser River.
