The Vancouver Park Board, in partnership with the Disabled Sailing Association, is renewing the aging pier at Jericho Beach and providing an accessible dock for sailors with disabilities.
The reconstructed pier will:

  • Provide an accessible floating dock to provide for users of all ages and levels of mobility, accommodating up to 15 sailboats for the Disabled Sailing Association’s adaptive sailing program
  • Provide seating and views of Burrard Inlet and English Bay
  • Offer recreational fishing and crabbing opportunities
  • Accommodate future sea level rise

  1. This is a great idea. Piers help the public to experience and appreciate the waterfront more, and can be useful public amenities. Disabled sailing is one of many practical uses that could enhance the positive interaction between a city and the sea. I suggest thinking big on this idea would still garner sufficient public support of the cost.
