Public naming of parks
Currently, the park board uses a three-step process to name its parks. The new streamlined process, if approved, would replace the naming committee with a web-based public engagement process “to generate, support and discuss name ideas.” The final decision would still be made by the board itself.

Food carts in parks
When it comes to food carts on parks by summer 2012, the Vancouver park board is set to vote on a food cart pilot program. If the vote goes through, food carts will appear in highly-visible, trial locations this summer including the info booth in Stanley Park, Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park and next to the Burrard Marina in Kitsilano’s Vanier Park.
If the pilot program is a success, Vancouver may just get food carts at sports fields in the near future too.
