BLAKEBURN LAGOONS PARK
Location: Port Coquitlam, BC
Project Type: Landscape Architecture
About This Project
The 11-hectare park has seen an abundance of wildlife including foxes, raccoons, bats, muskrats, snakes, salamanders, frogs and over 125 bird species. Meanwhile, water contamination levels at the site have dropped significantly from pre-construction levels.
The park has become an educational facility for local schools involving plant installation and wildlife monitoring. It has also become a “hot spot” for Vancouver-area birders. Since opening in spring 2018, over 125 bird species have been sighted there. Blakeburn Lagoons Park, through the introduction of natural remediation processes, wildlife features, interpretive signage and walking trails, offers an engaging and immersive experience of ecological restoration and renewal.
