Park Board to vote on future of Moberly Park – ABC to support park improvements

For Immediate Release
June 20, 2024

VANCOUVER, BC – ABC Vancouver Park Board Commissioners Jas Virdi, Marie-Claire Howard, and Angela Haer will vote to support an upcoming Park Board staff report on the future of Moberly Park. ABC Vancouver is calling on residents to voice their support at Monday’s Park Board meeting.

“Our team couldn’t be more excited to support these upcoming improvements,” said Howard. “These upgrades to Moberly Park are over twenty years in the making and start to address the long history of underinvestment for Southeast Vancouver.”

Upgrades outlined in the staff report include implementing a new turf field, walking track, spray park, field house, and washrooms. Vancouver City Council has already allocated $10M in funding to support improvements to the park.

 “We know the exact types of benefits this will bring for those who live and work in Southeast Vancouver – more fun, better amenities, and a safer neighbourhood” said Virdi.  “The feedback we’ve been receiving from neighbours, community leaders, and sports organizations has been clear – there is universal support for these upgrades.”

Ahead of the vote on Monday night, ABC Vancouver is calling on residents to attend the meeting and voice their support for the park improvements.

“Southeast Vancouver deserves to have access to better amenities — that change will only happen if the community speaks out,” said Haer. “We’re asking everyone to sign up and voice their support for this important staff report.”

The Park Board Meeting will be held on Monday, June 24th at 6:30PM at the Park Board Office (2099 Beach Avenue). Residents can request to speak by signing up online.
