Track and Field Strategy

We are working with the Vancouver School Board to develop a long-range strategy for track and field sports and facilities in Vancouver. 

The new strategy will create a vision for track and field sports, including exploring opportunities for renewal, expansion, and maintaining track and field facilities. 

It will also support a bright future for athletes by increasing participation in track and field sports by both competitive athletes and users with a wide range of abilities and interests. 

The Track and Field Strategy is aligned with the City of Vancouver’s Healthy City Strategy.

What's happening

Phase three is underway

The project team has completed research, technical studies, incorporated feedback from round two of engagement, and worked with staff and stakeholder advisory groups to develop draft recommendations, concept plans, and a draft survey to bring back to the public.

We want to hear from you

Over the month of May and June we'll be going out to parks and events looking to hear back from people. 

Share your feedback on the draft recommendations for the strategy in our online survey.
