Still Creek Enhancement

What you need to know

Still Creek is one of the few remaining visible streams in Vancouver. It provides habitat and drainage by collecting and funnelling rainwater.

Renfrew and Rupert Station Area Plan

We're working on a new area plan around the Rupert and Renfrew SkyTrain stations, which falls within the Still Creek watershed.

We have been working with local partners and neighbouring municipalities to rehabilitate and enhance Still Creek, with the goal of creating a more naturalized creek corridor. 

Key goals

  • Daylighting buried portions of the creek, where possible
  • Making room for water
  • Restoring creekside habitat to include native plants while removing invasive species
  • Increasing canopy cover and vegetation for urban wildlife
  • Removing old concrete features and naturalizing the creek banks
  • Adding interpretive signage and features for educational and recreational opportunities
