BC Parks’ Future Strategy
Protecting our Legacy Together
B.C. is blessed with the most beautiful natural spaces in the world in every corner of the province. For over 100 years, British Columbians have worked together to preserve these gifts as our natural legacy to our children.
The BC Parks’ Future Strategy is a call to action. It is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to come together and ensure our parks are healthy, flourishing, innovative and sustainable so that they can be enjoyed by our children, and our children’s children.
Here’s where you can learn what we have in store for BC Parks, and how you can help make them the best in the world.
Discover Our Vision
BC Parks’ Future Strategy is a blueprint for an improved parks system that is focussed on conservation, recreation, sustainability and allowing you to have a direct impact on continually improving our parks. This means creating more opportunities to enjoy our parks, and more ways for you to support them.
Enjoying the Parks
There are more than 21 million visits to BC Parks every year, and that number is growing. We’re planning to expand our outdoor activities so more people can enjoy them safely, while making our facilities accessible for people of all ages and abilities.
We’re planning to expand our outdoor activities so more people have the opportunity to recreate in our parks, while making more of our facilities accessible for people of all ages and abilities.
Our plan includes guaranteed access for disabled users at popular locations and new outdoor recreation opportunities at all existing parks.
Our parks and recreation areas also serve as exciting outdoor classrooms where visitors of all ages can learn crucial lessons about climate change, biodiversity and conservation, as well as the importance of staying active.
Teaching our children about mitigating climate change and protecting delicate ecosystems is part of our ongoing mission to help B.C. move toward a low carbon future.
BC Parks will enhance our conservation measures starting with hiring more rangers to protect wildlife habitats and species at risk.
First Nations communities were the first stewards of the land and water, and BC Parks is proud to work closely with those communities to carry on our shared duty to protect the natural world.
