Kids at Play – Keep poop away!

Children playing in CapilanoCommunityPark and on the sports fields have been having some nasty encounters with dog POOP, which is not healthy, safe or sweet smelling.

City Bylaws govern responsible dog ownership.  Dogs are to be kept away from playgrounds, sports fields, school grounds and golf courses.  A dog may be on parkland so long as the dog is leashed and on an improved trail or unimproved trail; leashed and on a boulevard; leashed and in an area governed by signage permitting dogs; or in an off-leash area.  Dogs must be kept at least 10 metres from any playground or picnic site.  Generally, whenever dogs are off the property of their owner they must be on a leash not exceeding two metres in length and under control.  For more information on pet ownership, go to:  Please help keep our community clean and safe!

CFEP Funding Received for Capilano Community Park Redevelopment

June 15, 2013 was a wonderful day for Capilano Community League as we received a provincial CFEP cheque in the amount of $125,000 to assist us in the redevelopment of Capilano Community Park.  A number of committee members were on hand to gratefully receive the cheque from MLA David Dorward, at our Blues Java Bar fundraiser.  Click to view the Event Photo!!

Making a Difference in Your Community

As a Capilano community resident you have a unique opportunity to make a significant difference to those who live in your community.  Since 1958 the Capilano Community League has played a key role in providing recreational and social facilities and programming to the residents of this area.  Led by a core of volunteers willing to dedicate their time to improve the quality of life in our community, the Capilano Community League has a rich and rewarding history of service to its residents.  Fundraising through memberships, bingos and eventually casinos, the community league has been able to deliver facilities and programming that otherwise would not be available locally.  This has been done largely through the dedication and efforts of a small group of community league volunteers.  Over the years the efforts of people like Maurice Pourier, Al Park, Bob Breakenridge, Gregg Meropoulis, and Bill Burtnik, supported by a committed executive and a core of committee workers and volunteers, have made a difference in their community.
