Pandora Park and sports court upgrade

Pandora Park

The Vancouver Park Board wants to replace one or more tennis courts in Pandora Park with more green space and a new sports court for basketball.

We have secured capital funding for the sports court upgrades and associated park improvements. A landscape architecture firm will work with the community to develop a preferred concept plan.

We expect construction to begin in 2018.

Pandora Park is located at 2325 Franklin Street (at Garden Drive) in Grandview-Woodland.

What's happening

Results from the sports court upgrades questionnaire

Thanks to over 200 people who shared their thoughts on the preliminary concept plans for Pandora Park, and gave input at the Fall Fair open house and through our online questionnaire from September 24 - October 9, 2017.

The majority preferred option 1, followed by mixed support for concepts 2 and 3. On average, two-thirds of respondents liked the key changes proposed for the park related to: a designated off leash dog area, expansion of the community garden, and removal of 2 of the 4 tennis courts.
