The new “River District” is Vancouver’s biggest neighbourhood development since the Olympic Village a decade ago, but because it’s in the furthest southeast corner of the city, it’s likely out of mind for most folks.

But it’s filling in, development by development, and with it are slowly coming amenities like parks. 

This is one of two that has been completed, a small simple green space with lots of plants and benches around a basic walking path. It’s well done for what it is, and is an example of how smartly designed places don’t need to be large or extravagant to be welcoming, even if this one is particularly basic. 

It’s worth noting that every park here on out is considered “acceptable” by our ranking team — we’re still not at anything really good, but these parks are fine enough for what they’re offering.
