“Older community center.”
#7 in Killarney
3351 Maquinna Drive
From one of the most unique parks in the city to one of the most generic, Champlain Heights is another park surrounding a community centre with a playground and some all-purpose fields.
The playground is average for 2020; two small slides and a tunnel bridge, on a raised sandbox that makes it less than accessible for all.
However, a better playground with a fun dragon theme is at the bottom of the field, next to the school annex. The sharp incline down to the field provides a dramatic view of Everett Crowley Park to the south.
The city has been promising an upgrade to the playground for a while now; that it’s been delayed for more than four years while more than a dozen parks in other parts of the city have gotten an upgrade might speak to the geographical inequities of Vancouver.
