EDGAR and BC Housing are proposing to redevelop Woodland Park, over the next 15 - 20 years, into a master planned, well-served community with an innovative mix of housing, significant parks and open space, child care and neighbourhood retail. EDGAR and BC Housing have applied to the City of Port Moody for an Official Community Plan amendment and rezoning, to allow for additional uses, height and density.

Thank you to everyone that joined us on July 5, 2021 for the Online Open House. If you were unable to attend, you can view a copy of the presentation slides below.
Woodland Park is a 23.4 acre site, with 20 existing buildings and 10 surface parking lots which were built in the 1960s. There are currently 200 market rental units. The site is steeply sloped, from Cecile Drive to Clarke Road, with a vertical drop of approximately100 feet. The site also contains a significant amount of environmentally sensitive areas (ESAs) (22% of the total site area).
Woodland Park is situated among some of Port Moody’s greatest green space, close to schools, recreation facilities, and a twenty-minute walk to neighbourhood shops and services.
