Burrard Slopes Park

The Vancouver Park Board is developing a new one-hectare neighbourhood park near the border of the Kitsilano and Fairview neighborhoods.

The Burrard Slopes Park project area currently includes 6th and Fir Park, 5th and Pine Pop-up Park, a portion of the Arbutus Greenway, and a series of buildings that will be removed. 

The new park will:

  • Serve as a place for the community to gather, play, experience culture, and seek respite in the bustling neighborhood
  • Enhance the livability of the area and improve access to nature
  • Help us achieve VanPlay’s 10 Goals to Shape the Next 25 Years including Goal 1: Grow and renew assets

Building removal at Burrard Slopes

The vacant buildings at 1620, 1630 and 1670 W 5th Ave will be removed in preparation for construction of Burrard Slopes park. The buildings have been deemed unfit for repurpose.

Where possible, materials from the buildings will be reused to minimize demolition waste, in keeping with the City’s Green Demolition by-law and Zero Waste 2040.

Building removal is planned to begin in spring 2024 and should take approximately 10 to 13 months. The area outlined in red on the map will remain closed during this time. Other amenities on this block are expected to remain open for the majority of the work.

A temporary wildflower meadow will be planted to remediate the soil for the period between building removal and construction of the permanent park.
