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 will complete two main phases of public engagement and we look forward to getting your input on this second phase. Phase 1 was completed in June and results can be found in the documents tab. The Phase 2 survey will be available October 12 - November 2, 2021. Results from this next survey will also be available here in December 2021. We intend to share the final recommendations in March 2022.

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

    We will be receiving feedback until November 2. Fill out the survey here.
