More waterfront park space coming soon to Ambleside!

As part of the Ambleside Waterfront Plan, the house at 1448 Argyle Avenue is being removed to create more park space and improved access to the waterfront.

Ambleside Waterfront Plan

The District of West Vancouver has been working to create open park space and public access to the waterfront since the mid-1950s. The District bought and removed cottages and houses to create Ambleside Park and then, in the 1970s, began buying properties along Argyle Avenue between 13th Street and 18th Street. 

In 2016, after an extensive community consultation process, Council endorsed the Ambleside Waterfront Concept Plan. The plan includes something for everyone to enjoy—more green spaces and public waterfront access, multi-use plazas, improvements to community facilities, and much more. This work is planned to take place in phases over several years.

Part of this plan is the removal of the District-owned house at 1448 Argyle Avenue for the creation of Brissenden Waterfront Park. This will be part of the continuous green space and dedicated park that will extend between Ambleside Park and John Lawson Park. The new green space is anticipated to open to the public by late spring 2024.
