John Hendry (Trout Lake) Park master plan

John Hendry Park and Trout Lake

The Vancouver Park Board is developing a long-range master plan for John Hendry Park. The master plan will recommend improvements to ensure the park continues to be a vibrant and well-loved community gathering space for years to come. 

John Hendry Park is located in East Vancouver’s Cedar Cottage neighbourhood. It is a premier community park with the only accessible freshwater lake in Vancouver. 

The master planning process is an opportunity to capture the ideas and concerns of residents, park users and stakeholders, and establish directions and investment priorities for park development.

What's happening

Open house postponed

 The open house and park tours scheduled for Saturday, April 4 have been postponed due to COVID-19. We'll update this page when the new date is confirmed.

To date, the engagement process has included more than 1,600 stakeholder and public interactions. Input received has informed the development of the first draft of the master plan.
