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 next year, we will launch two main phases of public engagement and we look forward to getting your input. The phase one survey is now closed after receiving input from May 13th - June 13th, 2021. Results from the survey and other phase one engagement will be shared on this site in July 2021.

    Throughout the spring and summer, the Park Board and City of Vancouver will be integrating skateboard (and small-wheeled sports) pop-ups in some of our parks and public spaces. Pop-ups are a great way to temporarily activate a space with a feature to test the area as a future location for something more permanent, to bring awareness around CitySkate Skateboard Stragegy, and to observe how these elements are received by the public. Dates and locations will be posted as they develop.
