Park Board meetings and decisions

Vistors at Stanley Park's Rose Garden

Scheduled evening meetings are at 2099 Beach Avenue, to discuss staff reports, review Park Board policy and projects, and plan for the future. Each meeting is structured around a list of topics for discussion and the rules of order are carefully followed. Occasionally, an extraordinary meeting may be called.

Meetings begin at 7:00pm in the Board Room. Seating is available and the public is welcome. The meeting room is equipped to assist those with hearing disabilities, and is wheelchair-accessible.

Agendas for upcoming meetings will be posted about one week before the meeting. Minutes from previous meetings will be posted as soon as they are available, usually about one week before the next meeting.
