We want your help with developing our citywide Skateboard Amenities Strategy called CitySkate. Your feedback will help shape a long range plan for improving the skateboard facilities within our park system in addition to finding opportunities for skateboarding (and other small wheeled sports) in public spaces within the city.

The Skateboard Amenities Strategy is guided by VanPlay, Vancouver’s Parks and Recreation Services Master Plan, which represents a strong commitment to equitable delivery of excellent parks and recreation opportunities, including improving access to and availability of skateboard amenities.

We want to hear from everyone, from those who are on their boards daily to those who have never been on one. When skate amenities are planned and designed with strong community input, they not only become beloved destinations for local youth but celebrated public spaces for everyone to enjoy.

Over the course of the project, we have completed two main phases of public engagement. Phase 1 was completed in June 2021 and results can be found in the documents tab. The Phase 2 survey was live from October 12 - November 8, 2021 and sought feedback on potential skate amenity location across the City. Results from this survey will also be available in the documents tab December 2021. We intend to share the final recommendations in March 2022.

    We took what we heard in Phase 1 engagement to develop the Phase 2 survey, which specified potential locations around the city for new skate amenities, improving our existing ones, and other creative ways to incorporate skateboarding in the city. The input will help finalize the recommendations presented in the Skateboard Strategy this spring.

    The Phase 2 survey was open from October 12 - November 8th. Thanks to everyone who participated and provided valuable input and feedback. Results from the survey will be shared on this page in December 2021. We intend to share the final recommendations in March 2022.
