Rochester Park is a mature park located in the heart of Coquitlam’s Maillardville neighbourhood. The City identified a need to rejuvenate the site, through maximizing program value in its flatter open areas while preserving its attractive wooded ravines. Hapa served as a landscape architect and prime consultant heading a multidisciplinary team in the delivery of detailed design, construction documentation and contract administration. Key design features include preservation of existing wooded areas, a play environment including elements for older youth, a water play area, a climbing wall and a giant slide that connects two park areas at different elevations.
