V5K Proud

The PNE has been a proud member of the Hastings Sunrise Community for 105 years, and boy have we seen the neighbourhood change! It seems that every day there is a new trendy restaurant or artisan cafe popping up and new families moving into this ever evolving, but always vibrant community.

We strive to not only produce attractions that all of Greater Vancouver can enjoy, but also events for our neighbours including a Farmers’ Market, annual Community Day at Playland and a Community BBQ. We’re also proud to host and support the events and initiatives of local community groups including this weekend’s LightWaterDrums lantern festival, community park walks, a Terry Fox Run for the local schools, an Easter egg hunt, the Learn to Fish Programs in the Sanctuary and numerous local conferences, workshops and festivals.

The 2014 Winter Farmers’ Market ran every Sunday throughout October and November here at Hastings Park. We are excited to announce that the market will return this spring, fall and winter! More details to come!

Learn to fish

Did you know that you could learn about fish identification, conservation, safety, proper fish handling, tackle, rod rigging, casting and enjoy an hour of hands on fishing at the Sanctuary? The program starts up again March 14.

LightWaterDrums-2012-015sm

We are proud to once again host LightWaterDrums this Saturday, January 24, from 5:30-9pm. Come out to the free lantern festival and celebrate the beauty of the dark and wet winters of Vancouver.

Neighbourhood BBQ

At the launch of summer, we host a free Hastings Sunrise neighbourhood BBQ to bring the community together in the beautiful garden’s and parks here at Hastings Park.

HLLDay

Since 2012 we have hosted a Hastings Little League day at Playland. $10 from every ticket sold on the day is donated to help the league in hosting the 2016 Little League Canadian National Tournament. In total $67,380 has been raised.

Biking

We are happy to support our community’s events and festivals. In events like the community Bike Fest we provided waste stations, bike racks, clean-up crews and administrative support.

As we move forward with Hastings Park permanently being our home we will continue to grow our connection with the local community with continuing to build our programs and outreach. Check out all of our Community Relations initiatives and for local residents, make sure you’re signed up to receive our community e-newsletter to keep up with what’s happening here at Hastings Park.
