Everett Crowley Forest Restoration and Outdoor Learning Project
Forest Restoration at Everett Crowley Park
Everett Crowley Park is one of Vancouver’s largest natural areas. Already considered a destination park, its cottonwood-dominated forest is being enhanced to increase its biodiversity, wildlife habitat, and resilience.
The park features:
- Unique views of the Fraser River
- Forested pathways
- Off-leash dog amenities
Ongoing enhancements include:
- Clearing of invasive Himalayan blackberry and Japanese knotweed
- Planting native conifer, deciduous and shrub species
The Outdoor Learning Project at Everett Crowley Park
In 2015, the Park Board partnered with several groups to build an outdoor learning space in Everett Crowley Park.
The co-created learning space is open to everyone including school groups, community organizations, and park users. Visit Manfred’s Meadow in the park to learn more and experience outdoor learning in the city.
