Sinkhole closes a portion of Strathcona Park in Vancouver

Jul 20 2022, 6:30 pm

Early this week, the Vancouver Park Board closed a part of Strathcona Park as a precaution due to a small sinkhole.

This includes the closure of the park’s tennis courts, with the sinkhole caused by aging infrastructure, specifically a storm drain pipe under the park.

A temporary fix has been made since a decision was made to perform a partial closure of the area, but Park Board staff are looking for a more permanent solution.

Strathcona Park reopened in Fall 2021 following the end of a prolonged homeless encampment, which necessitated major repairs to the space.
