Marpole Community Centre renewal

This community-guided project will deliver on a plan for the future of the community centre

The Vancouver Park Board has developed a schematic master plan for Oak Park with a proposed location for the new Marpole Community Centre and full-sized outdoor pool, after multi-layered public consultation.

The Park Board and City of Vancouver are now working on detailed planning and design of the community centre and outdoor pool in collaboration with our partners at the Marpole-Oakridge Community Association.
