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.

    This isn't a question, it's a comment about the demographic information that you asked for. I live in Renfrew-Collingwood, just the other side of Nanaimo, far closer to the park than almost everyone who lives in Grandview Woodland. My neighbours and I frequently visit the park....it seems really odd that you didn't give Renfrew as an option for residence in a "near neighbourhood". Also, in terms of activities my most frequent activity is walking to John Hendry Park and around the lake as a destination, not as part of a walk on the way to anywhere else. This was not an option to describe how I use the park. My other main activity in the park is bird watching, also not given as an activity. In other words, why not an "other" option here?

    I filled in the survey (took a looong time) and it would not accept my postal code so would not send it. It has now deleted it all!!!!

    Shei asked 5 months ago

    We are sorry to hear of the troubles you encountered while taking the survey and will investigate as to why this happened. In the meantime, we have extended the survey until December 21st if you would like to try again. If possible we recommend trying a different device and/or browser that what you used to take the survey the first time.

    Has there been any noise pollution impact assessment on the proposed "Victoria drive community plaza" skate park elements and the "south beach event area".

    Jeanr asked 5 months ago

    We have not undertaken noise analysis associated with the proposed park improvement recommendations for Victoria Drive Community Plaza or the South Beach Event Area. Both of these areas will be the subject of future detailed design investigations, beyond what is being illustrated within this renewal plan. Those detailed design investigations will explore and analyze different possibilities, including potential noise impacts, and will include opportunities for people to provide feedback.

    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 6 months 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 6 months 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

    Soom asked 6 months ago

    The Phase 2 Engagement Information Boards, which include the map and information on the dog off-leash area, and that are part of the on-line survey, can be viewed in the Documents section of the Shape Your City page. This section can be found on the right side of the Shape Your City page, below the following sections: Key Dates; Project Timeline; Frequently Asked Questions; Contact Us; and Videos.
