About the project


We are proposing a 60-plot community garden in the north-east corner of Art Wilkinson Park to be managed by the Grow Local Society. The footprint of the garden would be approximately 650 square metres or four per cent of the park’s total area.

A community garden provides members of the community with a place to grow their own food and meet their neighbours. Art Wilkinson Park was identified as a suitable location based on assessment of a variety of factors such as access to sunlight and water, access to transit and parking, potential for school or community partnerships, and current and future site use.

Community garden plots are in high demand in Port Moody, and the installation of a new garden would help the City meet its goals of enhancing food security and social connectedness through urban agriculture (as stated in the Parks and Recreation Master Plan). This location in the Glenayre neighbourhood provides sufficient space for a garden to flourish. Read staff’s Report to Council on this topic.
