White Rock’s Bayview Park to get boost

Waterfront spot to receive upgrades this summer after infrastructure grant from federal government.

Visitors of Bayview Park on White Rock’s waterfront will have more space to enjoy the ocean view in the coming months.

Infrastructure upgrades to the park, located at Bay Street and Marine Drive, will include a gazebo, benches and a brick-paved walking trail, South Surrey-White Rock-Cloverdale MP Russ Hiebert announced last week.

Through the federal government’s Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund, $40,300 will be put towards the park, with the city matching the amount.

Also on hand for Thursday’s announcement were Couns. Helen Fathers and Grant Meyer and White Rock Mayor Wayne Baldwin, who noted that the lengthy process to finalize plans for the upgrades would be well worth it when work was completed.

“It’s been a long process and good things do take a little while to come together, and that’s what happened here,” he said.

“For the first time in over 20 years, we’re going to extend the promenade. It’s been a long time coming.”

Work on the park is set to begin as soon as possible, with an aim to finish by the end of summer.
