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

New playground in Champlain Heights

As part of the Champlain Heights Playground Upgrades, we're building a new playground next to the community centre, for the wider community to use.

This larger playground was designed using feedback heard in the public engagement phases, and will include a brand new play tower, embankments slides, trampolines, and water play.

The playground will be completed later in 2022.
