The City of Vancouver wants your opinion on a new waterfront park in False Creek

      Vancouver’s Olympic Village is set to get a brand new waterfront park, and the Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation wants your opinion.

      Currently known as East Park, the waterfront destination—sitting between the up-and-coming Railyard neighbourhood and Olympic Village—will aim to be a new community hub in False Creek.

      There are currently two new designs that incorporate habitat areas, connecting walkways, and other park features for the East Park site, nudged between the Seaside Greenway and East First Avenue. From March 26 to April 16, residents can review the two concepts online and share their feedback through a survey.

      The board will also be hosting an open house on April 13 at Creekside Community Centre for in-person discussions.

      Considerations for the project include rejuvenation of the shoreline, honouring the land’s Indigenous history, and what’s next for the nearby Expo Deck (next to Science World).

      A separate process to give the park an official name will take place later.

      The City is also currently seeking feedback on a possible car-free block in the area (Ontario Street from Walter Hardwick Avenue to Athletes Way) in hopes of improving the Ontario, Central Valley, and Seaside greenways.
