Mount Pleasant neighbourhood skateboard park

Quilchena Skateboard Park in Vancouver

The Vancouver Park Board is looking to provide a new skateboard park in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood because of rising skateboarding popularity in the area. 

The Park Board has secured funding for a new mid-size skateboard park in one of two proposed Mount Pleasant neighbourhood park locations:

  • Jonathan Rogers Park (Manitoba Street and West 7th Avenue)
  • Robson Park (Kingsway and St. George Street)

The new skateboard park will serve skateboarders of all skill levels.

Detailed design discussions will begin after the Park Board has approved a location.

    With skateboarding increasing in popularity in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood, the Vancouver Park Board has identified the neighbourhood as an area in need of a new skateboard park.

    The first phase of the project includes a public consultation process, beginning with deciding which one of the two proposed parks (Jonathan Rogers Park or Robson Park) is the most suitable location for the new skateboard park. 

    Detailed design discussions, including input from skateboarders, will begin after the Park Board has approved a location.
