New Brighton Park Shoreline Restoration

New Brighton Park Shoreline Habitat Restoration Project

The Vancouver Park Board and Vancouver Fraser Port Authority are working together to create salt marsh on the east side of New Brighton Park. The project is a unique opportunity to restore coastal wetland habitat on the south shore of Burrard Inlet.

A restored salt marsh would:

  • Provide productive habitat for juvenile fish and wildlife, including shorebirds, songbirds, and waterfowl
  • Create new opportunities for you to experience nature and view wildlife

On April 18, 2016, the Vancouver Park Board approved the concept plan for the salt marsh based on a design and public engagement process.
