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

Thank you for your feedback

Open houses were held on December 10, 2018 and February 12, 2019 at Champlain Heights Community Centre to share ideas and provide feedback on playground locations, preliminary designs, and equipment options.

Feedback received at the open houses and the online survey will be used to develop a concept for the new playground.
