Get involved

Participate in events, online surveys, and provide feedback as we develop design options for the Arbutus Greenway.

The Arbutus Greenway will be a destination for people from all over Vancouver, and we want your help. 

Throughout the planning process, we will keep you informed, listen to public aspirations and concerns, and provide feedback on how public input influenced design options.

Planning the greenway

Projects like this take time, especially with complex engineering requirements and to ensure we have a meaningful public process that brings together all the best ideas from the community.

As part of the planning and design process, the project team had 7,000 touchpoints with members of the public at over 50 events, including a multi-day “charrette” or design workshop, numerous stakeholder workshops, open houses, and online surveys.

Here’s where we've come from.

  • 2016

    Temporary path

    We built a temporary path for everyone to enjoy while we plan and design the future greenway.

    Explore the greenway

  • Early 2017


    We consulted with stakeholders and the public on the vision for the future greenway.

  • Fall 2017

    Design options

    We developed several design options for the future greenway. We consulted with residents during the Design Jam.

  • April 2018

    Proposed design concept

    Drawing on public input and technical analysis, the proposed design concept features walking, cycling, and future streetcar paths, as well as public realm amenities.

  • September 5, 2018

    Option Lands

    Council approved the removal of the lands between West 1st Ave and West 5th Ave from the Arbutus Corridor Official Development Plan.

    The amendment does not change the existing zoning of the Option Lands. Any potential rezoning would be considered in a future public process.

    Further consultation as part of Phase 1

    Sign up for the project newsletter to receive updates and be notified of upcoming consultation activities.

  • Future

    Post design and construction

    Once we complete the master plan for the future Arbutus Greenway, we will begin construction and begin to identify if there are any excess lands along the railway line that will not be used for Arbutus Greenway purposes.

    There will be additional opportunities to get involved during each phase of detailed design.
