New neighbourhood park on former Delbrook Lands
We are planning a new neighbourhood park on a portion of the land occupied by the old Delbrook Community Centre.
Our preferred plan for the park focuses on accessible and active recreation and sport amenities, and features multiple path connections and access to the natural areas and creek.
The plan is based on input we received during public consultation for the overall Delbrook Lands planning project, and considers these factors:
- Existing site conditions, amenities, and environment
- Community input on preferred uses and future amenities
- DNV park planning objectives
The park will be located next to the portion of the old Delbrook Lands that has been set aside for the proposed four-storey building designated for social housing.
Timeline for park construction — June, 2023
Demolition of the buildings on site is now complete. The daycare and tennis courts will remain open this summer while staff complete the final park designs. Park construction is expected to begin in 2024.

The park includes a grass amphitheatre, multi-use space with sport court, playground, bike skills area, exercise equipment, open grass area, tennis courts, and a pedestrian bridge over the creek.
