Horseshoe Bay Park

Environmental Impact Assessment
PWL Partnership Landscape Architects
2017

Diamond Head Consulting (DHC) conducted an environmental overview assessment for Horseshoe Bay park. Horseshoe Bay Park is an existing waterfront park located in Howe Sound west of the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal, with Sewell’s Marina and a public pier along its northern shore. The intent of this report was to inform the planning and design phase for the park refresh and renewal project associated with a nearby development. This environmental overview assessment identified existing natural values, opportunities for enhancement, and possible constraints associated with the site. Specifically, biologists and arborists completed a comprehensive assessment of the ecology, trees, wildlife habitat, watercourses and species at risk. This inventory and summary report summarizes environmental values and land use associated with the park and includes preliminary recommendations for environmental restoration and mitigation.
