We want your feedback on Park Board priorities in the draft 2023-2026 Capital Plan!

What is the Capital Plan?

It is a four-year financial plan for investments in Vancouver's infrastructure and amenities.

For Vancouver's Board of Parks and Recreation, this plan funds everything from new parks and playgrounds to maintaining the seawall and expanding urban forests.

Part of this process means making some hard choices – there is not enough budget to take on all the projects that the community would like to see. We create the draft plan guided by: what we've heard from community about needs, the state of repair of facilities and spaces, and provincial rules on allocating funding toward new versus renewal projects and other priorities as described in VanPlay, our Parks and Recreation Services Master Plan. This draft Capital Plan tries to strike a balance of priorities for the next four years.
