One of the most curious pieces of land in the Park Board’s portfolio is a thin, steep path connecting the well-off Mackenzie Heights neighbourhood with the slightly-less-well-off but still very comfortable Arbutus neighbourhood down below.

But “curious” doesn’t make “good”. This is really just a tiny trail, awkwardly crammed between two private properties, giving one the feel of sneaking through someone’s backyard to get to a different destination.

There’s a modicum of potential here, if the park board gets around to designing it as promised.
