The City of Coquitlam, in collaboration with Beedie Fraser Mills Limited Partnership (Beedie Living), is moving forward with planning and development of the public amenities in the future Fraser Mills neighbourhood. This includes parks, a community centre (which includes a pool), and public art.

Fraser Mills’ public waterfront, parks and community gathering spaces will create a unique first-of-their-kind destination and amenities in Coquitlam. Current and future Coquitlam residents and visitors will be able to stroll along the Fraser River, experiencing and learning about unique natural features and their role in the community and region.

As these lands fall within kʷikʷəƛ̓əm First Nation’s traditional and ancestral territory, it is an important opportunity for the City and its partners to continue to demonstrate a commitment to advancing reconciliation through ongoing engagement and collaboration with kʷikʷəƛ̓əm representatives.

As the City embarks on this new waterfront development, the project team is committed to gathering public input that will help shape how the amenities and programming can create a vibrant public realm.

In early 2024, we will be looking for your feedback on the public amenities included in the future Fraser Mills development. While each of these components is at a different stage of the planning and design process, they are expected to be completed around the same time.

Residents and visitors of all ages will have the option to walk and bike the riverside trail, play in the riverfront parks, enjoy the views of the Fraser River from the pier and wharf, visit the urban plaza and community centre, and learn about the history of the site from interpretative signage and public art.

Illustrative Concept Plan

Parks and Open Space Plan

  • 2023-2027 Phase 1: Planning, Design, Construction to Park Opening and include:
    • Riverfront Park, Historic Como Creek Greenway, and Fraser Mills Wharf
  • 2023-2030 Phase 2: Construction of Urban Plaza, Fraser Mills Pier

Community Centre

The future 4,645 sq. m. (50,000 sq. ft.) Fraser Mills Community Centre is envisioned as a hub for socializing, health, aquatic leisure, and play for the growing community at Fraser Mills and the City of Coquitlam. It has a substantial role to play in creating a complete community in the Waterfront Village Centre.

Public engagement, along with technical studies and site investigations, and the Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan will shape the building site fit and programming.

  • 2023-2024 Community Centre Planning
  • 2025-2026 Design development
  • 2027 Construction begins
  • 2030 Community Centre opening

Public Art

Public art plays a vital role in helping to build complete communities, engage with our surroundings in diverse ways, and instill a meaningful sense of place for residents and visitors alike.

The public art component of the project will help us explore important themes that will impact how we understand and experience the neighbourhood. Themes are likely to be related to the natural and cultural history of the Fraser Mills area.

Public art elements will be incorporated with the planning and design of the parks and community centre.
