Committee and Board Meetings

The Board of Parks and Recreation (Park Board), is a publicly elected body established by the Vancouver Charter to specifically manage and protect Vancouver's parks and recreation services.  As with all other civic elected posts in the City of Vancouver, the seven Park Board Commissioners are elected for four year terms. The last civic election took place in October 2018 and the next election will be held in October 2022.

The Park Board generally holds public meetings every two weeks, with a Committee meeting followed by a Regular Board meeting. The meetings take place at the Park Board Administration Office located at 2099 Beach Avenue in Stanley Park (unless noted otherwise), and are also available for online viewing via the Park Board's live webstream.  Refer to Types of Park Board Meetings for more information on the different types of meetings.

NOTE:  We recommend watching meetings online. Following updated guidance issued on September 10, 2021, there is a maximum allowable capacity for public in-person participation permitted at Park Board meetings. For more information see the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) Order on Gatherings and Events and Restart Plan.

As of August 25, 2021, masks are mandatory in all indoor public spaces, even if you are vaccinated, until further notice.
