Some parks get a good score because of how they feel, and some parks accumulate a good score because of the amount of things they have for people to do. Oak Park is the latter.

#69: Ash Park
With such a growing population in the area, there’s a need for an excellent community gathering space, and we think Ash stands a good chance of filling that need.
#74: Riverview Park
There’s not too much to Riverview: it’s a big sloping park, with a playground in one corner and a bunch of trees dotted around the green space. But it’s all done extremely well.
#120: William Mackie Park
There are good bones here, and with the park board committing to an upgrade, (including new playgrounds and a washroom) there’s potential it could become a top-tier tiny park.
#127: Ebisu Park
One of the parks created in Vancouver at a time when the city decided Marpole’s amenities were lacking, Ebisu has a curious split structure.
#137: Marpole Park
Marpole is underwhelming, and so are its parks.
#153: Winona Park
This sprawling park just off Cambie and 59th is another example of how large parks in south Vancouver seem to be only half thought out.
#189: Park Site on Shaughnessy
There’s a covered picnic table, rare in a city that doesn’t prioritize them, a few benches, and the only beach volleyball courts in the south side of the city.
#224: Fraser River Trail
If you’re interested in a picnic date next to a bridge, a river and about 200 buses, it’s for you.
