Entrance to the old Jericho Garrison at Jericho Lands

Jericho Lands


Read past updates on the Jericho Lands.

The Jericho Lands are a 36-hectare area in Vancouver’s West Point Grey neighbourhood that's bounded by 4th Avenue, Highbury Street, 8th Avenue, and Discovery Street.

The eastern 21-hectare portion is known as the Jericho Garrison (shown in yellow on the map below). It used to be owned by the Department of National Defence and is expected to be decommissioned by 2017.

The western portion is owned by the Province of BC (in blue on the map). Parts of the property are leased to a private school and the Vancouver Park Board.

New land-use possibilities for Jericho Lands

The transfer of the eastern portion to the Canada Lands Company and their Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations partners has opened up new possibilities for this large, significant piece of land.

As each landowner is ready to proceed with planning for the future, the City will explore – through broad engagement with the public – how any future redevelopment can address affordable housing, social and environmental sustainability, and public amenities for the benefit of the community and all people of Vancouver.
