East Fraser Lands (EFL) parks

East Fraser Lands (EFL) is being developed by Wesgroup to house up to 12,000 new residents in the coming decades.

To compliment this development, the Vancouver Park Board is committed to designing and constructing 25.2 acres (10.2 hectres) of parks within the community – approximately 20% of the land area.

In 2016 and 2017, the Park Board undertook a community engagement process for 7.8 acres of these parks including Foreshore Park, Kinross Park, and Neighbourhood Park South. The designs were approved by the Park Board in late 2017 and the detailed designs evolved through 2018 and 2019. The design process is also underway for a new park at Sawmill Crescent and Marine Way, with public engagement opportunities in late summer 2020. 

Neighbourhood Park South was opened to the public in September 2019. The northern portion of Kinross Park will begin construction in summer 2020. Foreshore Park and the southern portion of Kinross Park require further coordination with the developer (Wesgroup) and the acquisition of permits from the Province of BC prior to commencing construction. 

What's happeningSouth Kinross Park construction

Construction of South Kinross Park begins in February 2023 and is expected to be completed in early 2024.

We require further coordination with the developer (Wesgroup) and permits from the Province of BC before starting construction on Foreshore Park.
