Come explore activities at fieldhouses located in our parks.

Vancouver Park Board's Fieldhouse Activation Program transformed former care-takers’ suites in parks or underused facilities across Vancouver into active spaces for community engaged creative practices.

In each cycle artist collectives, local food, environmental, and sports groups are given access to these spaces in exchange for engaging neighbours, colleagues, and curious visitors in imaginative, collaborative work in parks.

These inspiring projects lead communities into deeper conversations about living in the urban environment.
