Final Score

9.22

It is hard to make the case that one should “visit” any of the miniparks, but they are pleasant enough for the neighbourhood. And this one has a wide enough pathway and enough heritage homes to be interesting enough to walk through.

When they were installed, a number of people expressed hope that they would help the West End become more of a community. Whether that happened as a direct result is questionable, but the neighbourhood is now widely considered a model community (finishing second in Vancouver in CBC’s 2020 neighbourhood bracket), and certainly there aren’t people racing through Comox to get on the Lions Gate Bridge faster.

So on the whole, we’ll give the miniparks their due.
