Regional parks are great places to go for a walk, breathe fresh air and enjoy the beauty of nature. They're also part of a larger system that includes regional park reserves, ecological conservancy areas and greenways – all located within the traditional homelands of the Coast Salish First Nations. These green spaces protect diverse natural landscapes and habitats spread out over British Columbia's largest metropolitan area. They are our shared legacy.
Our Role:Protecting the region’s natural areas and connecting people with them.
Our Mission:Regional Parks contribute to a livable region by conserving natural assets and connecting people to nature. They enhance the quality of life of residents and visitors and provide opportunities to experience nature. The important natural landscapes protected in regional parks contribute ecological goods and services to the region and mitigate climate change. The Regional Parks service fosters environmental interpretation, education and stewardship through community development and promotes a sense of responsibility for, and connection to, the place in which we live.
Pacific Parklands Foundation is a registered charity dedicated to the conservation and enhancement of Metro Vancouver's regional parks.
