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.
