#127: Ebisu Park

“Utterly unremarkable.”

#5 in Marpole

8810 Olser Street

For Kids


For Adults






Final Score


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.
