Andy Livingstone park playground renewal

Andy Livingstone Park playground renewal

The Vancouver Park Board is renewing the playground in Andy Livingstone Park in Downtown. The playground is scheduled to open April 2017.

The new playground will accommodate a wide range of ages and abilities, as well as higher use due to a new elementary school opening next door in January 2017.  

The playground will feature separate high-quality play zones that meet CSA standards, shade, comfortable seating, and overlook areas for parents and caregivers.

With the removal of the viaducts, the conversion of Carrall Street to parkland, and the North East False Creek Park pending, Andy Livingstone Park playground will be integrated in these further works.
