New “SuperDogs” Inspired Dog Park

The City of Vancouver is proposing an upgrade to the existing off-leash dog area in Coopers' Park, located adjacent to the Cambie Street Bridge. The proposed dog park will consist of many new features such as tunnels, ramps, boulders, logs, climbing blocks and agility poles. Resembling a doggie theme park the new dog area will also include water and agility features, a designated digging area, and a separate section for shy unsocial pups.  

The Vancouver Park Board has raised several issues with the existing off-leash dog park. The wide-open area lacks fencing, good lighting and covered areas. Not to mention the pre-existing lawn has been torn apart by rambunctious dogs.  

The upgraded dog park will include synthetic turf specifically designed for dogs. A secure fence will surround the park and there will be a separate area for the pups to do their business. The new design incorporates several designated play zones and seating areas.  

Other improvements coming to the park include a playground, fitness area, and a controversial $645,000 public toilet. The public washroom is set to include an exterior hand washing station and a drinking fountain, installation is planned for Fall 2021.  

The Park Board collected feedback from an online survey for the new dog park which will lead to design revisions Summer 2021. Construction in Coopers' park will commence as early as Winter 2021!
