Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Government of BC recently approved funding to the Abbotsford School District for a new elementary school next to Eagle Mountain Park. The School District is currently in the planning stage for construction and the School is proposed to open in September 2022.

Public engagement was conducted in the spring and the City is currently reviewing the results. While it is still under review, the Abbotsford School District will begin clearing the site adjacent to Eagle Mountain Park for construction of a new school. At this time, no decisions have been made regarding restricting access to the park. Thank you to everyone who completed the survey. Updates will be posted to this website when available.

BACKGROUND:
The City and the School District have agreed to negotiate the shared use of Eagle Mountain Park during school hours, and in return, community access to specific school features (for example - external washrooms) during off school hours. The proposed "joint use" of the field at Eagle Mountain Park would mean that the field will not be open to the public during school hours of 8am-4pm. The playground and sports courts will remain open for public use during school hours.
