Champlain Heights playground

Champlain Heights playground upgrades

The Vancouver Park Board is upgrading the playgrounds in Champlain Heights.

The Champlain Heights community currently has three playgrounds that are in need of replacement:

  • One large playground at the community centre
  • Two smaller playgrounds within the walking paths between Champlain Crescent and Matheson Crescent

A local landscape architecture firm has been hired to redesign the playground at Champlain Heights Community Centre and to assess the condition of the neighbourhood playgrounds within the walking paths.

What's happening

The playground is complete

The playground renewal at Champlain Heights Community Centre is now complete and open for the public to enjoy.

This new bright and colourful playground is designed for children of all ages and abilities, with various accessible opportunities throughout. 

It includes:

  • A new play tower
  • Embankment slides
  • Trampolines
  • Water play
  • A variety of seating and shade opportunities
  • A drinking fountain and misting post
