Luke Jensen Sports Park

A Community Tribute

Luke Jensen Sports Park

Overview

The Luke Jensen Sports Park is a 20-acre public recreation hub that provides home turf for a range of local soccer and baseball leagues, as well as a lively destination for the community to gather and connect with nature. Named in honor of the late Luke Jensen, a King’s Way Christian Schools student who battled leukemia, the park is both a fitting tribute and an important location for Vancouver’s sports enthusiasts.

Layout and Program

The park’s athletic facilities include three synthetic turf fields, two natural turf baseball fields, batting cages, and a full playground. The fields radiate from the centrally-located Bud Van Cleve Community Room. The 2,200 sq. ft. community room is located on the second floor with windows on all sides to allow unobstructed views of all the fields.

One of the unique features of the complex is the six-acre forested neighborhood park on the north side of the property. Walking and biking paths coupled with picnic areas create new opportunities for the community to enjoy and experience nature.
