New park at Oakridge Centre

The Vancouver Park Board is planning a new park as part of the redevelopment at Oakridge Centre.

The nine acre public park will be the first of its kind in Vancouver, located partially on the roof top of the mall and partially at ground level.

This innovation in park design will offer a unique experience for existing and new residents in the area and will act as a destination park for the rest of the city.
