Green space, active living, and community
Vancouver is the only municipality in Canada with an elected park board, the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation. The Park Board's mandate is to nurture, maintain, and develop Vancouver’s urban parks and recreation system.
This committment brings sports and recreational programs, social and cultural activities, educational programming, and special events to the people through community and cultural centres, pools, rinks, golf courses, and specialty parks.
Find Vancouver sports fields, courts, golf courses, ice rinks, fitness centres, pools, water parks, marinas, community centres, and gyms.
From public art to performance art, from dance to visual arts, crafting or writing, cultural or popular performances, arts and culture are a vibrant aspect of Vancouver.
The Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation provides, preserves, and advocates for parks and recreation services to benefit all people, communities, and the environment.
