Colony Farm Regional Park Sheep Paddocks Trail Alignment Study
The Sheep Paddocks Trail was a popular pedestrian and cyclist trail in Colony Farm Regional Park that provided a key connection to the surrounding communities in Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam. Due to safety concerns that arose from erosion and regular flooding, the trail has been closed and a new alignment has been sought. A consultant team hired in Summer 2013 has now completed a Trail Alignment Study that evaluates possible route options considering environmental, geotechnical, hydrological, structural, acoustic, and visitor experience factors.

Route options were presented to the public at an Open House November 7th, 2013. Display boards from this Open House are posted here.

The public comment period has now closed. Feedback received will be summarized and presented to the Metro Vancouver Environment & Parks Committee in early 2014.

If you have any questions, contact:  ColonyFarmOutreach@metrovancouver.org or 604.520.6442.
