Vancouver Park Board holds Clean Up Blitz in Stanley Park

Stanley Park camp clean up feature

Vancouver’s crown jewel got an early spring cleaning today.

A seasonal clean-up blitz was fast tracked in 400-hectare Stanley Park as a result of recent citizens’ concerns. About two dozen Park Board staff, including Park Rangers and gardeners, removed enough junk to fill a medium sized swimming pool.

What was removed from the park

From eight abandoned camps and elsewhere in the park, crews removed:

  • Garbage
  • Liquor bottles
  • Tents
  • Mattresses
  • Discarded needles

Rangers will return next week to identify further areas of concern and more clean-up will be done after that.

“The Park Board routinely maintains more than 230 parks across the city for cleanliness and safety. Today, we made a conscious effort to go out and spruce up our most famous park,” said Vancouver Park Board Chair Sarah Kirby-Yung.
