Through the many phases of this project, we acknowledge that New Westminster is on the unceded and unsurrendered land of the Halkomelem speaking peoples. We acknowledge that colonialism has made invisible their histories and connections to the land. As a City, we are learning and building relationships with the people whose lands we are on.


Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who participated in the online survey and throughout this project. Your input has been invaluable to developing a long-term master plan for Hume Park that meets the needs of the community. Results will be summarized and posted on this page. They will further inform the finalized master plan the will be presented to City Council.


ABOUT HUME PARK

Established in 1912, Hume Park is a 31.72 acre park located at 660 East Columbia Street in the Sapperton Neighbourhood. Its unique topography defines a distinct Lower Hume and Upper Hume Park and its variety of natural amenities and recreational facilities enable the park to serve as both a passive and active recreational destination while the Brunette River provides valuable aquatic and wildlife habitat. With ecologically sensitive areas, aging infrastructure and future adjacent development, Hume Park faces challenges to balance a variety of user needs and interests to continue to serve the community.


WHAT WE HOPE TO ACHIEVE

The Hume Park Master Plan will be a 20 year, long term vision for Hume Park that will provide direction to the Parks and Recreation Department by identifying priorities for implementation of improvements.

The purpose of the master plan study is to identify community priorities for the park while ensuring compatibility of current and future uses and efficiency of the overall park layout within the context of preserving ecologically sensitive areas along the Brunette River. With a community-vetted master plan in hand, the department will be well equipped to efficiently and effectively allocate future Capital Project funds as they become available.
