Vancouver Aquarium in the Midst of $60 Million Revitalization Project



Vancouver Aquarium in the Midst of $60 Million Revitalization Project

Vancouver, British Columbia - The Vancouver Aquarium is preparing for a significant expansion and revitalization of its facilities, which will include new galleries and exhibits, and feature the highest standards of sustainable design. Along with exciting additions and changes to our facility, the updated revitalization project plans include new public services and features that will benefit everyone visiting Stanley Park. Beginning in the fall of 2011 and taking approximately three to four years to complete, this is an exciting and innovative project for the City of Vancouver, the Province of British Columbia and Canada as a whole.

The upgrades include the revitalization of ageing infrastructure and the expansion of the Aquarium, Vancouver’s leading cultural institution. This will be done through eight projects that range in size from $1.5 million to $18 million, totaling approximately $60 million. These structural elements must be addressed to ensure the viability of the facility and the well-being of our 50,000 animals. From expanding current exhibits, such as the B.C. Wild Coast and Canada’s Arctic, to an entirely new gallery and new display pools, visitors will have increased space to be engaged, inspired and amazed by the unique marine life that lives here.
