The Vancouver Park Board's Fieldhouse Activation Program provides artists, community groups, and organizations with space in a fieldhouse and access to parks to create activities that engage the community.

By repurposing underused space in fieldhouses into small community spaces, this program aims to: 

  • Animate our neighbourhoods with place-based activities focused on one or more of our priority themes including arts, culture, environment, and local food
  • Host events and activities in locations where people already gather
  • Provide space for user groups in exchange for community-engaged activities    

Some of our fieldhouses have specific mandates for programming based on the neighbourhood, space available, and needs of the adjacent community centre.
