Supporting Healthy Connected Communities

A healthy city is one where people can make meaningful connections while using our public spaces to improve their health and well-being. Our city should have more accessible opportunities to gather and celebrate with our communities and to engage in physical activity, for both ourselves and our furry friends. Vancouver Green Park Board Commissioners will:

  • Enhance accessibility and support for community and youth sports organizations, with an emphasis on programs that support at-risk youth.

  • Explore new ways to come together in our public spaces year-round, while making it easier to host festivals, pop-up events, food trucks, and beer gardens in our parks and beaches.

  • Prioritize maintenance and improvements to our existing sports fields and playgrounds, while adding infrastructure to allow for more outdoor physical activity options in parks.

  • Expand the number of dog parks across the city and invest in infrastructure and amenities needed for dog owners to more adequately enjoy our parks.

  • Expand, improve and connect safe cycling networks & greenways. Greens at Park Board, School Board and City Council will work together to complete a safe, green active transportation network in Vancouver that connects cycling routes to schools, community centres, parks, transit, and employment areas.
