One of Metro Vancouver’s most scenic waterfront public parks, and a popular stop for ferry passengers and tourists, could receive a complete overhaul.

The District of West Vancouver is developing a design plan to revitalize Horseshoe Bay Park — the 2.5-acre waterfront public park between BC Ferries’ Horseshoe Bay Terminal and Westbank’s Sewell’s Marina mixed-use redevelopment.

Preliminary conceptual plans so far include a new waterfront pathway that connects the entire park and seamlessly crosses the boat ramp.

Other features could include a new playground, lookout points, plaza, vehicle parking spaces, and beach access, and an improved flexible great lawn with the capability to host concerts, community celebrations, festivals, and Christmas Tree lightings.

Following the conclusion of the ongoing public consultation phase, a finalized design could be made later this year to allow for construction to begin in 2020.

There is no cost estimate for the project at this time.

Besides the revitalized park, other major changes could be coming to the waterfront area as a result of BC Ferries’ plan to completely rebuild its ferry terminal to improve its capacity and efficiency. Construction could begin in the early-2020s and cost up to $250 million.
