There are 35 parks in the City of Vancouver with a washroom and a big field you can play soccer or baseball on — and of those, Clinton is right around the middle.
There are few places providing a more panoramic sweep of Vancouver than heading down the hill on Knight Street at 37th Avenue — the full view of the mountains and the port as you enter the core of the city, a reminder of what all the hype is about.
Oak Meadows is unlike a lot of parks in the city, with a way less formal and designed feel, and is separated out enough that it’s a great place for many groups to hang out.
It’s a lot of nice stuff in a mid-sized space, punctuated by a nice view from the high point of the park on the northeast corner.
