Trout Lake is located in the center of the park and is operated by the Vancouver Parks Board and the Grandview Community Association. The park is often referred to, by the locals, as Trout Lake.HistoryThe park was one of Vancouver's first lumbering operations in the late 19th century. The Hastings Sawmill was owned by John Hendry and the lake was the water source for the mill.In 1926, Hendry's daughter, who was married to the governor of the province, Eric Hamber, donated the mill property to the Park Board with the condition that it be named after her father.In 1963 the Grandview Community Center, located near Victoria Drive, was constructed. The community center was later renovated in 1977 and renamed Trout Lake Community Centre.In 2010 the new ice rink and renovations were completed for the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, as the figure skaters training venue, with finances of $13.15 million from Vancouver’s Park Board. $2.5 million from Vancouver Organizing Committee for the 2010 Olympics (VANOC) and $250,000 from the Grandview Community Association.
