PLAYLAND

Playland opens May 6 with three new family rides!

Spin your way through a magical land on the new coaster ride, Bug Whirled, peddle your way to the clouds flapping your wings on The Flutterbye, then take the plunge on the marvelous mechanical Dizzy Drop. All three rides will accommodate the entire family, so get ready to share even more memories and screams this coming spring and summer.

Admission to Playland gives you access to over 30 rides and attractions, including our three new family rides! PLUS this year, Pacific Adventure Mini Golf is now included FREE with admission!

Vancouver Inspiration Pass

Welcome to the Vancouver Inspiration Pass.

Opening the door to exciting experiences and fun things to see and do across the city, the Vancouver Inspiration Pass is a free cultural and recreational pass program that allows individuals, families and teens to explore their city like never before.

Free for Vancouver residents aged 14 years and older, the pass is valid for a period of two weeks, and can be borrowed through any Vancouver Public Library location.

There are 140 passes available for loan every two weeks – 20 are available through the Central Library downtown and six passes available at each of VPL branches across the city.

Response to the pass has been tremendous. We are working hard to ensure that eligible patrons receive passes as quickly as possible, so that as many resident as possible can enjoy this outstanding program. Given the strong interest and limited number of passes, however, some patrons will experience a wait before a pass becomes available. We appreciate your patience.

We are continually evaluating the program and working on improvements, and our patrons are an important part of that process. We’d like to hear what you think – please share your comments and suggestions at info@vpl.ca
