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.

Goals and objectives of this project 

The master plan is the next step in improvements to John Hendry Park. In 2009, the Trout Lake Rink was replaced in preparation for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. The community centre was replaced two years later with the new LEED gold-rated Trout Lake Community Centre, opening to the public in 2012.

The objective of the planning process is to ensure the park continues to be a vibrant and well-loved community gathering space for years to come. 

The master plan will support the Greenest City 2020 Action Plan goals to enhance biodiversity, improve ecological health, reduce combined sewer overflows, and increase access to nature.

What's happening

Extensive engagement took place in 2013 and 2014 to develop the draft master plan but was paused in 2014 to develop city-wide people, parks, and dogs strategy.

Join us at our open house

We're now seeking input from the community and stakeholders to refine and update the draft master plan.
