John Hendry (Trout Lake) Park master plan

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.

Upcoming engagement

Public consultation has been postponed due to COVID-19. We will update this page when the new date is confirmed.

The project team is currently developing the draft park master plan. This work incorporates the feedback provided in Phase 1. A second phase of public consultation for the draft master plan will take place in 2021. 

Previous engagement

In 2015, the draft John Hendry Park Master Plan identified seven park objectives and a number of potential recommendations. In 2019, the Park Board asked if the draft objectives were still relevant and whether any key areas were missing. To date, the engagement process has included more than 1,600 stakeholder and public interactions.
