City celebrates new outdoor recreation space July 30

What’s your vision for Pitt Meadows Athletic Park?

From youth sports to fun outdoor activities, recreation is a vital part of life in Pitt Meadows. So when the City is able to expand those amenities in a big way, it’s cause for celebration.

And THIS party is for the 13 acres of green space recently contributed to the City by Onni Group Developments as part of the Golden Ears Business Park Phases 3 and 4 development. Included in the South Bonson property are eight acres of park land and five acres of an enhanced trail network, with an estimated value of $22.5 million.

A July 30 celebration at Pitt Meadows Athletic Park is in the works, including a sod-turning ceremony, recreation activities, cake, and a who’s who in local community sports.

Have your say

The celebration will also kick off the opportunity to weigh in on what you think the property should be used for – the addition is an opportunity to re-envision the entire athletic park complex and to expand the user base for residents of all ages and all abilities.

“This amenity contribution opens up many possibilities to expand outdoor recreation and sport facilities and re-envision the entire Pitt Meadows Athletic Park complex,” said Mayor John Becker.

“So we have the opportunity to create something that will add to the livability of Pitt Meadows.”

Resident and community sport group feedback on the use of the land will also be considered within this fall’s Parks and Recreation Master Planning process, which will shape its facilities, programs and services.

Join the celebration!

Celebrate with the City of Pitt Meadows and local sports groups on Monday, July 30 at 6:30 p.m. at Pitt Meadows Athletic Park, 11431 Bonson Rd., with Global BC’s Kaitlyn Herbst emceeing, and remarks by local leaders and community sporting groups, followed by a sod-turning ceremony and refreshments. All are welcome.
