“Very small park that is pretty, generally quite empty as well.”

3530 Deering Island Place
A tiny island on the southwest corner of Vancouver that served as both farmland and residential area for BC Packers cannery workers, Deering Island was transformed into a small suburban-style single-family development with waterfront views in the 1980s.
While the push by some Vancouver residents to turn the entire island into a park failed, in 1999 a park was officially proclaimed on its far west side. A small green space next to the road transitions to a walking path next to the water for 70 metres or so.
Perfectly pleasant for island-dwellers, in other words. Plenty of more interesting waterfront options for the rest of us, however.
