There’s no doubt about it – the pier-side lawn and panoramic ocean views that Memorial Park offers make it one of the City’s favourite gathering spaces! So, whether people gather for a picnic with the family, a day of soaking up the sun with friends, or for the perfect viewing spot for fireworks shows throughout the year or one of the summer’s TD Concerts at the Pier. Memorial Park is the place to be.
Because of the popularity of the park, and to accommodate the growth of the City around it, the City of White Rock is upgrading the park space and adjacent pier washrooms. The approved concept design includes new washroom facilities, a useable space for concerts and other performances, a Splash Zone water feature, and more!
At the July 24, 2017 Regular Council Meeting, White Rock City Council awarded the contract for the construction of Memorial Park and Pier Washroom Upgrade to Fricia Construction Inc.
Community Engagement: The City held two Open Houses, one on September 14 and one on September 24, 2016, to collect feedback from the community on conceptual designs of Memorial Park. Information boards, imagery, and a draft concept were on display. Residents dropped in and shared their ideas with the team. Session 1 focused on collecting initial thoughts to improve the "working draft" concept. Session 2 showcased the revised concept plan and offered the opportunity for the public to add further insight.
