CRAB Park at Portside

Fieldhouse and washroom update

As part of our city-wide Parks Washroom Strategy (3.5 MB), the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation is piloting two new Portland Loos and has installed a new drinking fountain at CRAB Park at Portside.

The fieldhouse, which was closed in October 2019, was demolished due to its condition. The Portland Loos and demolition work was funded by the 2019-2022 Capital Plan New Washrooms budget.

We are continuing to monitor the Portland Loos.


Here is our progress and planned steps.

  • Fall 2021

    Demolition of the fieldhouse

  • Spring 2022

    Installation of the Portland Loos and new drinking fountain

  • Summer 2022
