Clark Park east playground renewal

The Vancouver Park Board is upgrading the east playground in Clark Park. The current playground needs renewing due to its age and condition.

We'll develop and refine a playground concept in 2017 with input from the community and key stakeholders.

The construction schedule and phasing will depend on funding.

Past updates

Summer and fall 2016

Through the initial public outreach process, Stratford Hall External website, an independent school located across from the park, offered to raise the money for a new playground. Over the summer and fall, the school has been reaching out to the students and community, with the goal to raise $250,000 for a new public playground.

Spring 2016

The Park Board proposed to remove the east playground due to its age and condition, and safety concerns. We asked you to provide feedback about potential options for the site in an online questionnaire, which ran from March 15 to April 10, 2016. The results indicated that the majority of respondents would like to see a new playground replace the structure if it is removed.
