“watched fireworks from here… was ok but a little bit too far away.”
#13 in Kitsilano
2699 Point Grey Road
This park site is slightly better than most of the Point Grey Road parks due to the more head-on view of the mountains, a couple more benches that are closer to the view, and a patch of land that has a few more gentle slopes for games of bocce.
It’s also the site that became the subject of political controversy in 1991, because two years after the city bought the last of the properties for $1.9 million, some park board commissioners argued it should be flipped for a profit to build more parks on the east side of the city.
