City of Port Moody Official Community Plan (2014)

Coronation Park has residential and mixed use land designations in the Official Community Plan (OCP), allowing up to 26 storeys. An OCP amendment is being sought to allow for additional height at Coronation Park.

The "Happy City" Approach to Coronation Park

Happy City, a planning and design firm focused on the connections between happiness and the built environment, developed a well-being framework tailored specifically to Coronation Park using input from the community. Community input was obtained during various pop-up events at Suterbrook Village and Moody Centre. 

The following guiding principles have been identified as part of the wellbeing framework and are incorporated throughout the refined proposal:

Proposal Refinements

Combining community input, City Council feedback, and recommendations from the Happy City Report, several refinements have been made to the proposal for Coronation Park. These refinements have resulted in an increase in public park space and employment space, an overall density reduction, and the inclusion of a rent to own program.

PARKS AND OPEN SPACES

The public park space has increased from 1.5 acres to 2.53 acres. The park has been reconfigured to be interwoven between the built environment and accessible from several points across Coronation Park creating better barrier-free pedestrian circulation. Potential programming at the park includes gardens, lawn areas, children’s play areas, outdoor fitness areas, and urban agriculture. 

NEW DAYCARE

The proposed daycare has been increased by 1,500 square feet. The space is now envisioned as a 9,500 square foot space, accommodating approximately 90-120 children.

SUSTAINABILITY

Coronation Park is still envisioned as a sustainably designed master planned community with the potential to: utilize rainwater management on-site, provide buildings that meet significant energy performance standards, and use local products and resources where possible. We have also included opportunities for urban agriculture, the inclusion of pollinator plants throughout the garden, and vegetation nataive to the area.
