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.

We have much to keep you warm and active this winter in our Winter 2024 brochure. Thank you to our Park Board programmers for searching out new activities for the Douglas Park community each season. Winter 2024’s new programs include: Parent and Tot Dance, Design Thinking for Children – Creative Problem Solving, Strong HIIT Conditioning, Watercolour 101, Dog Obedience – Leave It, Self Care, Interior Design, and Family Finances – RESP’s, Trusts and Estates.

The centre is continuing its re-activation of programming post-pandemic and is pleased to be able to offer Hatha Yoga and Body Rolling Thursday nights at Tapestry.
The annual general meeting of the Douglas Park Community Association was held on November 21st at which time directors were elected and auditors were appointed for the 2023/24 fiscal year. You can find our Annual Report on our website at douglasparkcc.org. The board is currently focusing on updating the DPCA strategic plan based input from community members in our 2022 Needs Assessment and working on the key findings of the Needs Assessment which included:

  • Loud and clear support for the conversion of the existing wading pool at Douglas Park converted to a new spray park;
  • A need for more in-person interactions. Such interactions could be promoted through a café at Douglas Park, more benches, picnic tables and picnic shelters; and
  • A desire for better fitness opportunities which could include an enhanced fitness studio centre and fitness studios (e.g. yoga and spin).

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