Douglas Park Playground

Douglas Park playground renewal

The Vancouver Park Board will be rebuilding the playground in Douglas Park in 2017.

A concept for the new playground was on display at a recent open house at the Douglas Park Community Centre.  Many who attended were excited to discuss the potential features in the playground. Some of the improvements shown in the concept include:

  • New play structure with large slide
  • Accessible play equipment
  • A sand play area
  • New paths with seating
  • A zip line
  • Picnic tables
  • A quiet play/outdoor classroom
  • Playhouse
