John Hendry (Trout Lake) Park is a beloved park located on the traditional territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations and in East Vancouver’s Cedar Cottage neighbourhood.

We are developing a long-range renewal plan for John Hendry Park that will recommend a broad range of park improvements to ensure the park remains a vibrant and well-loved community gathering space for decades to come.


Give your feedback on the Phase 2 refined recommendations

The project team has prepared an updated draft park renewal plan and is now seeking feedback on key recommendations. This work incorporates the feedback provided in fall 2019 during Phase 1.

We invite all park users and stakeholders to review the information presented here to help us establish directions and investment priorities for future park development.

Take the survey from November 23 to December 14, 2021.

    Have you consulted with the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations people regarding the indigenous way to clean the lake water before putting this renewal plan?

    Jinny asked 8 days ago

    The draft renewal plan has been developed in collaboration with Vancouver Parks’ Reconciliation Planners. While the renewal plan provides numerous broad park improvement recommendations, it is not a technical document and therefore does not prescribe specific solutions, particularly for technically complex problems such as improving water quality in Trout Lake. Once the renewal plan is endorsed by the Park Board, staff will consultant with a range of people to seek input and guidance on the preferred approaches to addressing water quality. Staff expect this consultation will include discussions with xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish) and səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations who have previously expressed an interest in being involved in the renewal of John Hendry Park.

    Have you considered the City of Vancouver's Zeo Waste goal in a renewal plan? https://vancouver.ca/green-vancouver/zero-waste-vancouver.aspx

    Jinny asked 8 days ago

    The renewal plan foresees park operations, including waste management by adopting best management practices including those described in the City’s Zero Waste 2040 Strategic Plan.

    Where can I find the map with explanations? I was able to view it while taking the survey but can't find it now. I'm also interested in seeing more details like the off-leash dog area. Thank you
