The waterfront path along Olympic Village between Science World and Hinge Park is one of those places you would take people to if you wanted to explain modern Vancouver — a collection of immaculately designed public spaces and waterfront views and separated pedestrian and cycling paths that seems utopian so long as you don’t ponder the economics of it all.
In the middle of that is a weird sliver of land that’s technically a park.
Called “Triangle” in the planning stages and in databases, but never publicly named as such, there are two long undulating benches (with overhanging structures that could be covered to protect from the rain, but aren’t, because Vancouver), surrounded by a bit of grass.
A fine space to enjoy a bite to eat, but another area where one wonders why it’s technically a park.
