Killarney Park track and field upgrades

The Vancouver Park Board, in collaboration with the Vancouver School Board, is upgrading and expanding the running track at Killarney Park to a more comprehensive track and field facility following recommendations outlined in the Track and Field Strategy

The upgraded amenities will:

  • Improve training and recreational opportunities for track and field and running clubs, school groups, and facility users
  • Better serve the city’s population growth and increased participation in track and field sports
  • Help provide equitable access to these facilities and promote participation in physical activity

Proposed upgrades

  • A new standardized 8-lane running track with rubberized surfacing
  • Expansion of the facility to include jumping and throwing amenities
  • A new natural grass infield that accommodates throw sports (discus, hammer toss, and javelin) 
  • Spectator seating opportunities
  • On-site storage

What's happeningApproved design and construction timeline

On November 27, 2023, the Park Board approved the project concept design, which includes a natural grass infield. The detailed design is in progress, and construction is expected to start in late 2024.
