Brewers Park Renewal

The Vancouver Park Board is renewing Brewers Park, a 3-acre neighbourhood park on the west side of Victoria Drive, one block north of Kingsway. The park is expected to see increased use in the near future as the result of ongoing densification along the Kingsway corridor, while continuing to support neighbourhood services provided by groups like the Cedar Cottage Neighbourhood House.

Improvements to the park include:

  • New playground complete with a water feature
  • New multi-sport court
  • New community garden with raised planters
  • New trees, seating areas, and picnic tables
  • Improvements to accessibility and circulation
  • A stormwater feature
  • Resurfaced tennis courts

The Vancouver Park Board supports the creation of outdoor pools and splash pads in the city through the VanSplash Aquatics Strategy (4 MB). In accordance with current water conservation policies, outdoor pools and splash pads are required to have water recirculation systems in place to limit water expenditures. The in-ground splash pad identified in the Brewers Park concept plan did not take this policy change into account and a recirculating splash pad was not within the project budget. The new park will, however, include a water pump and runnel integrated into the playground.  

What's happening

Construction started on April 30, 2020 and is expected to be complete in early 2021. During this time a majority of the park will be closed to the public. The sports field at the west end will remain open throughout the summer, and the washrooms will be subject to occasional temporary closure during construction.
