Tatlow and Volunteer Park Stream Restoration

Tatlow and Volunteer Park Stream Restoration

The Vancouver Park Board is restoring the historical stream in Volunteer and Tatlow parks. 

This project is a unique opportunity to recreate a former stream and restore the English Bay shoreline. 

By connecting the existing stream in Tatlow Park to English Bay, this project will:

  • Create an ecologically diverse stream corridor in Tatlow and Volunteer parks
  • Improve access to the shoreline through new paths
  • Restore and enhance riparian and shoreline habitat for birds and other wildlife
  • Improve rainwater management

This project is consistent with the Park Board's Biodiversity Strategy and is identified as a potential new water focus project in the City's Integrated Rainwater Management Plan.
