Get to work on Vancouver's Playbook

VanPlay is a year-long fun and interactive public conversation about the future of Vancouver's parks and recreation. To start, we want to better understand who we are serving, what your needs and challenges are, and any opportunities you can see that we should explore. 

In response to the feedback you give us now, we will shape the next survey, the seminar series, and problem-solving discussions to ensure we get to the heart of what matters to you. 

First up is the VanPlay Tour. We’ll be touring the city in our colourful van transporting the Imagination Playground – an interactive pop-up playground – to talk to you about the future of our parks and recreation!

What is an Imagination Playground?

Imagination Playground is a mobile block-based play system that encourages unstructured free play.

With a focus on loose parts, Imagination Playground features soft and oversized foam blocks, noodles, hinges, balls, and chutes with holes and shapes that fit together in a multitude of ways, allowing children and adults alike to transform their environment and design their own course of play.

Imagination Playground provides the freedom to express creativity and explore endless possibilities. This interactive outdoor exhibit encourages movement, flexible thinking, social development, and most of all, fun!
