Charleson Park playground

Charleson Park playground upgrade

The Vancouver Park Board is replacing a portion of the playground at Charleson Park.

The small playground adjacent to False Creek Elementary School, the tower, and the swings need to be replaced due to their age and condition. The lower playground adjacent to the swings was replaced in 2013 and will remain.
