Sport and Active Recreation Policy
West Vancouver offers many opportunities for recreation and sport which touches the lives of many residents. Whether you walk the Seawalk, hike the trails, swim at the Aquatic Centre, play soccer at Ambleside, or do Tai Chi at the Seniors’ Activity Centre, you are enjoying the many programs and facilities provided by the District. We pride ourselves on facilitating opportunities that encourage people to learn, play and grow, and making them accessible to people of all ages and abilities. The benefits to long-term health from being active and connected are well-documented.
The District has developed a Sport and Active Recreation Policy to formalize the underlying principles of why the municipality provides programs and opportunities for sport and active recreation, and to help guide decisions for the provision of these services.
The District's Sport and Active Recreation Policy was adopted by Council on November 29, 2016. This policy was developed with positive and engaging input from leaders in community sports groups, other groups providing opportunities for sport and active recreation, the West Vancouver School District (SD45) and Vancouver Coastal Health.
