East Park and Creekside Park South

The Vancouver Park Board is planning to build a new park in the Olympic Village and renew Creekside Park South.

Unofficially named East Park, this 1.2 hectare parcel of new park land is located east of the Creekside Community Centre, between the Southeast False Creek seawall and E 1st Ave at Ontario St.

The 1.2 hectare area of Creekside Park South to be renewed is located south of Science World, including the seawall to the Ontario St greenway.

The parks will:

  • Provide inclusive and diverse opportunities for passive and active recreation
  • Enhance biodiversity, urban wildlife habitat, and access to nature
  • Ensure marine and terrestrial ecological restoration
  • Complete connections to False Creek, nearby parks, community amenities, and the network of adjacent walking and cycling routes in the surrounding neighbourhoods.


Here are our planned steps.
