People walking on pathway in General Brock Park

We’re creating a new vision for General Brock Park to support a vibrant community. Alongside planting more trees and improving biodiversity, we want to create a park that is welcoming and inclusive. That means: more opportunities for gathering, community events, and more amenities to support year-round activities.

General Brock Park is a 1.44 hectare neighborhood park located in the northwest corner of Norquay Village, two blocks north of Kingsway. Through the VanPlay Initiative zone assessment, this area was identified as having low amounts of park space per resident, high demand for affordable and accessible recreation, and fewer street/park trees compared to other areas in the city. This park has been identified as being in need of improvement in the Norquay Village Community Plan and is listed as top priority for renewal in the Norquay Village Public Benefits Strategy.

From March 22nd to April 12th, 2022 we received 154 responses from residents to our online survey and at our park pop-up. Read the engagement summary to learn about what we heard and the top priorities that will influence the design.


The Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation acknowledges, with respect, that our parks are located on the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
