Metro Skate [Bonsor] Park
The Metro Youth Park (often referred to as Bonsor) is located in the City of Burnaby, close to Metrotown, two Skytrain stations and an existing recreation facility. The park is a regional destination for youth across Burnaby and Metro Vancouver.
The park is unique for its time, designed with three distinct zones: a flow park for beginners, a bowl, and a “real” street plaza. Other site elements include “hangout” and viewing locations, shade structures, drinking fountains, pathways and a playground. These were designed in collaboration with local youth through a series of park design workshops.
