Envision Silver Award for Sustainable Infrastructure
June 25, 2019 – The Willingdon Linear Park located in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada is the recent recipient of the Envision Silver award for sustainable infrastructure. To earn Envision Silver, a project must demonstrate that it delivers a range of environmental, social, and economic benefits to the host and affected communities.
Before development and construction of this project between Brentwood Park and Hastings Street, pedestrian access was poor and the area east of Willingdon Avenue was overgrown with vegetation and rarely used. The Willingdon Linear Park provides residents with a safe, accessible pathway with a direct connection between Brentwood Town Centre and Hasting Street; green space; and traffic calming of a busy arterial roadway.
