At the intersection of Main Street & 7th Avenue, a brand new park is to be built. Sign up and help us design the brand new park for Mount Pleasant.

The Vancouver Park Board is planning a new half-block urban park for the Mount Pleasant community at the intersection of Main Street and 7th Avenue and we would like your help to design it.

This new urban park sits at the gateway to Mount Pleasant, one of Vancouver’s most vibrant neighbourhoods, and its design will strive to reflect the needs of the area.

We want to hear from you! What opportunities can this new park offer to support the community’s open space needs? There are a number of existing parks nearby that allow different activities, like playgrounds and sports courts, and with events like Mural Festival and Car Free Day growing every year we hope the new park can be a flexible staging place for community events and all-season programming

We are seeking ideas and inspiration to inform the first stage of design. Add inspiration pins to the interactive map below and take our survey. We want to hear your thoughts!

For more information about the proposed project, please review the information booklet.

    Not a question, but the area desperately needs a designated dog park! It would be awesome if the dog park also had a small covered area for owners. Dog parks provide in my opinion the greatest opportunity for social interaction with my fellow neighbours and decreases social isolation. I believe a dog park could help alleiviate Vancouver's reputation as being the "unfriendly city".

    Thankyou for submitting your response. There is an increasing demand for dog off-leash areas within our city and the park Board is working toward improving our standards across the city. The People, Parks and Dogs Strategy (2017) looked at how we can improve Dog Off-Leash Areas (DOLA) across Vancouver, in response to growing demand.

    Within this document, on page 29, it notes that to minimise conflict with adjacent land uses, such as against busy roads like Main street and Kingsway, there should be a buffer of 50-75m. 

    As such, the Main & 7th Park site does not meet our standards and cannot meet the requirements to accommodate a DOLA.
