    Vancouver Parks Board is creating a non-motorized watercraft strategy, dubbed the On Water Strategy. This strategy will guide Parks Board activities over the next 10 years.

    They are in the third phase of the strategy development and are currently getting feedback on the draft strategies.  They are looking at strategies to improve access, safety, create greater opportunity, protect the environment, and encourage the development of community. During the first round of consultation, 60% of participants were kayakers. It would be great to continue that trend.

    Provide your comments on their draft strategy through their online survey or in-person at their open houses.

    Upcoming on-water open houses:

    • Jericho Sailing Centre, Saturday, June 9th from 11am – 2pm
    • False Creek Community Centre, Thursday, June 21 from 5 – 8pm

    The online survey can be found at this link. It is open until July 2.

    and if you’re tweeting about this, #onwater is the hashtag.

    Happy paddling!

    Nice to see that the Parks Board includes our input about improved club facilities and watercraft storage in the choices!
