The Vancouver Park Board looks after more than 230 parks. Their names – be they Stanley, Ebisu, Emory, or Bobolink – give these spaces character, and provide a sense of history, community, and belonging to us all.
What's in a name?
As new parks are built or acquired, they often end up with a temporary working name. But, 18 parks across Vancouver still need a proper name, and we want your input.
As of April 2017 we've put the naming process on hold while we develop recommendations for amendments to the park-naming process.
We're doing this to make the process more collaborative and to include Indigenous place names.
