A small parklet with no real interesting features, Willow Park serves the purposes of being green space in an area between Oak, Cambie, Broadway and 6th Avenue that has precious little of it.

And while that’s helpful for people who need to get out of their house and don’t want to head down the hill to South False Creek (or, more to the point, back up the hill later), there’s not much to recommend for non-locals.

A few benches allow quiet contemplation, and a large bulletin board structure, mostly empty during COVID, is a reminder of when a physical structure to display messages was key for community communication.
