Final Score

The best of the West End miniparks is objectively (if such a word can be used for this exercise) at Cardero and Comox, and this statement can be made for a number of reasons.

For one, it’s across the street from Lord Roberts Field and the adjoining elementary school, giving the space a less cramped feel, with things for the public to stare at other than just houses. 

For another, there is easily more benches and tables than the other miniparks, making it more inviting to sit and let the time go by. 

It used to be home to the Cardero Grocery corner store as well, but has been in development limbo for several years. Current plans involve new rental units and a new grocery store, which one hopes would make a decent minipark that much better.
