Redevelopment of Meadow Park is necessary to achieve resilience in response to increasing use levels and climate change outcomes. Additionally, park infrastructure is in need of replacement.
Meadow Park was constructed almost 40 years ago and has become one of Whistler’s most popular public outdoor spaces. With increasing pressures from visitation and environmental changes, it is essential to reinvestment in aging infrastructure to meet current programming requirements and opportunities.
A key focus will be the replacement of the ever popular spray park which is at the end of its useful lifespan and does not meet current Vancouver Coastal Health requirements or Whistler’s Water Conservation Bylaw.
Other proposed improvements include enhanced picnic areas and recreational space along the river’s edge, improved site circulation, reconstructed irrigation, and drainage system, formalized off-leash dog facility, and public art opportunities.
