Jericho Pier Renewal

The Vancouver Park Board, in partnership with the Disabled Sailing Association (DSA)  , is renewing the aging pier at Jericho Beach and providing an accessible floating dock for sailors with disabilities. 

The pier is a popular destination for locals and visitors as well as for fishing and crabbing. The ramp and float on the east side of the pier are used for emergency boat landing.

The reconstructed pier will:

  • Provide an accessible floating dock to provide for users of all ages and levels of mobility, accommodating up to 15 sailboats for the Disabled Sailing Association’s adaptive sailing program
  • Provide seating and views of Burrard Inlet and English Bay 
  • Offer recreational fishing and crabbing opportunities
  • Accommodate future sea level rise
