Hello from the Douglas Park Community Association!

Douglas Park Community Association is grateful to operate on the unceded, ancestral territories of the Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil Waututh Nations.

Douglas Park has much to keep you busy this spring and summer. Yoga will be offered at three locations (Douglas Park Community Centre, Tapestry and Heather Place). There’s also embroidery, Douglas Park Runners, and math and phonics fun for kids.

Douglas Park was nominated by two community members to receive a plaque from the Vancouver Heritage Foundation under the Places That Matter (PTM) program. The program was created in 2011 to celebrate Vancouver’s 125th anniversary as an incorporated city. PTM has helped recognize over 100 community-nominated sites, covering some of the people, places and events that tell the stories of Vancouver’s history. Douglas Park’s plaque will contain a QR code linking to a webpage dedicated to Douglas Park and exhibiting the plaque text, historic research, oral histories, contemporary and historic photos. Thank you to the Vancouver Heritage Foundation and our thoughtful community members.

You may have heard about Vancouver City Council’s motion regarding the Vancouver Park Board. It’s important at this time to highlight the vital role the Douglas Park Community Centre Association plays in our community. The association consists of up to 20 dedicated volunteer directors who work tirelessly to ensure the provision of affordable and quality facilities and programming tailored to meet the diverse needs of our community members. Their efforts not only encourage community use but also foster participation, making the Douglas Park Community Centre a cornerstone of our neighbourhood. Rest assured, as we gather more information about the future of Park Board, we will keep the community informed.

Community Day will be held on Saturday, June 22 from 11-2pm. We look forward to seeing you all there!

Thank you to all the DPCA volunteers, board members, DPCA and Vancouver Park Board staff, and the Vancouver Park Board.
