#5 in Marpole
8810 Olser Street
One of the parks created in Vancouver at a time when the city decided Marpole’s amenities were lacking, Ebisu has a curious split structure.
One side is a children’s play area that is not huge, but quite well done, with a lot of interesting exploration spaces along with the standard slide-and-swings getup.
The other side is a quiet garden area, more for contemplation, with a few small gardens and walking paths, along with a cluster of young pine trees.
Both of them are perfectly acceptable green spaces; that they don’t come together all that well is perhaps indicative of Marpole as a whole.
