This project includes three rounds of public engagement:
Round 1 was open August 10-30, 2021 and asked park and Greenway users, residents, and businesses what is important to them regarding how they access and connect to Kitsilano Beach Park and the Seaside Greenway.
We heard from over 1,220 survey respondents that after safety and comfort, the most important values in choosing a route for the separated cycling pathway are:
- Greenspace – preserving existing open space and trees as much as possible
- Connections – provide clear connections between the path, park entryways, the beach and park amenities (pool, sport courts, concession) for all park users
- Directness – make sure the separated cycle path is as direct and seamless as possible across the park
- Impact – minimizing disruption to all those who use the park, including events and businesses operating in the park
- Parking – maintaining convenient parking for people driving to and from the beach
See a summary of Round 1 results here. A full report will be available shortly.
Round 2 was open from November 1-28. We asked you to evaluate different separated cycle path design options based on the values identified in Round 1 to help identify a preferred route for the path.
The third and final round of engagement, planned for early 2022, will offer you the chance to review and share your input on the preferred cycle path route. The design will be fine-tuned based on this feedback and presented to the Park Board for approval in spring 2022.
