The Vancouver Park Board invites you to envision a new kind of park in Olympic Village and to reimagine a portion of the False Creek waterfront between Creekside Community Centre and Science World. Together, we have an exciting opportunity to design East Park.

Once a place with a diverse ecosystem where Indigenous peoples stewarded healthy relationships with the land and water, the shoreline of False Creek was dramatically altered in the 1900’s to support industry. The streams that once flowed into False Creek were filled-in as the city grew, burying thriving ecosystems and depleting the health of the land and water.

How can East Park be a new kind of park? One that reflects Indigenous values and supports a diverse ecosystem resilient to climate change. A park that captures and cleans rainwater, and provides increased access to nature. A park that is welcoming for all and tells the rich stories of this place.

Help us re-envision East Park.

    Wildflowers are blooming in East Park, drop by and see!

    We seeded the pollinator meadow with a wildflower mix and as each species blooms we will post a new photo and name the flowers in the Pollinator Meadow photo album.

    The meadow and wildflowers are attracting a wonderful variety of pollinator species such as butterflies, birds, and bees, while creating habitat, beauty, and seasonal interest for all to enjoy!
