Fifth and Pine pop-up park

Past updates

Find out what's happened so far on this pop-up park project at Fifth Avenue and Pine Street.

In November 2016, the Vancouver Park Board officially opened a pop-up park at the southeast corner of West Fifth Avenue and Pine Street. See Past updates for details.


Pollinator housing

A healthy pollinator population is important for food and seed production. The Vancouver Park Board worked with CityStudio Vancouver and the University of British Columbia (UBC) to create three pollinator houses for bees and bats.

UBC School of Architecture + Landscape Architecture (SALA) students produced pollinator housing designs and prototypes for Vancouver’s tiny and critical residents.

Mining bees

Leaf-cutting and mason bees

Become a steward of Fifth and Pine pop-up park!

On Thursday, May 10 from 5:50pm to 7:30pm the Park Board will host a community planting event. We will tidy up the space and building on the existing pollinator habitat with more flowering plants and grasses. Come by for a few minutes, an hour, or the whole event. Bring your friends!

Be prepared: Rain or shine: Please dress accordingly. 

What to bring: We have gloves for everyone and a few tools to share. If you have your own favourite gardening gloves or tools, bring them along. We’ll also have light refreshments (or you can bring your own) to enjoy at the reclaimed wood tables.
