In December of 2010 a significant milestone was reached in this planning – Vancouver City Council adopted the Hastings Park/PNE Master Plan. The Plan guides the long-range redevelopment of Hastings Park and the PNE.
The Hastings Park of today will be transformed into a greener,
year-round destination for park use that includes Playland, the annual Fair and places for festivals, culture, sport and recreation, leisure and fun. Some of Hastings Park’s diverse range of amenities, open spaces and facilities include:
The Plan provides for new and renewed facilities for the PNE and an expanded Playland, and will almost triple the amount of park space, currently 27 to an eventual total of 76 acres. The Master Plan is also an opportunity to significantly improve the sustainability and ecological performance of Hastings Park and the PNE, consistent with Vancouver City Council’s Greenest City Action Team priorities. The multi-purpose nature of the Plan reflects the challenging balancing act that the Master Plan achieves:
‘A Fair in a Park’ – a significantly greener and more publicly accessible Hastings Park which renews Vancouver’s historic annual fair and amusement park, while ensuring economic vitality and long-term sustainability.
With the Hastings Park/PNE Master Plan now complete, the focus of work is now on designing the initial park spaces in Hastings Park: Park Greenways, Reinstating Empire Field, the Plateau Sports Park, Creekway Park and a connection to New Brighton Park. These initial park developments focus on community priorities: creating additional park space and improving access to Hastings Park.
