Coquitlam residents can now have some fun outside city hall and the cop stop.
A slide, swings and ping pong tables recently opened at Buchanan Square — a public plaza that underwent a $4-million renovation over the past year.
The space on Burlington Drive also includes outdoor furniture, as well as lights on an overhead metal grid.
City staff told the Tri-City News the project was delayed because the contractor had difficulty securing steel with the global supply chain issues.
As well, there were challenges with the electrical hookups in the plaza, which is sited over an underground parkade, and with the size of a rubber landing pad for the slide.
A waterproof membrane for the underground parkade was also installed.
