Funding a bright future for the city

New Westminster community enhancement projects

In 2018, the City of New Westminster used a portion of its share of provincial gaming revenue for hosting Starlight Casino to help fund several community enhancement projects. One project was the rehabilitation of the Waterfront Esplanade boardwalk, a 1.3-kilometre walking path that runs along the Fraser River, connecting people with River Market, playgrounds, public art, Westminster Pier Park, and more.
