A revamp of Jones Park in East Vancouver could potentially offer new features that are unique to public parks in the City of Vancouver.

The Vancouver Park Board’s proposed revamp of Jones Park —¬†framed by Commercial Street to the west, the laneway behind 37th Avenue to the north, Victoria Drive to the east, and the laneway behind 38th Avenue to the south — could include adding outdoor fitness equipment to the northwest corner of the park.
