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.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded. Thanks to everyone who participated. There will be more opportunities to provide feedback on CitySkate - Vancouver's Skateboard Amenities Strategy in the future, so please check back for updates.

    Your feedback will help guide the future vision of skateboarding in Vancouver through the creation of the Skateboard Amenity Strategy and will support a healthy and inclusive culture for a diverse population of users. Survey will be open until June 13.

    A skateboard amenity is a purpose-built recreational environment made for skateboarding, BMX, scooter, roller skates and other small wheeled sports to utilize. 

    This survey is part of the first phase of a multi-phase process where your input will help us to:

    • Develop a preliminary design for a city-wide skate network that will include recommended locations for new skateparks and skate amenities of varying sizes and styles
    • Determine the quantity of new skate amenities needed   
    • Understand how the community feels about existing skateparks and spaces.


    We want to hear from everyone -- whether you are a skateboarder or not.  Don't forget to check out the map tab and show us your favourite locations. Results from this first phase of engagement will be shared on this site in July.
