We're upgrading Oppenheimer Park playground to provide much-needed enhanced play space for children and caregivers.
We want to create a playground that is safe, inclusive, and fun. This means:
- A play space that is safe and easy to observe
- Resilient, engaging, and fun play equipment
- Toys that are unique to the Downtown Eastside neighbourhood and encourage group play for children of all ages and abilities
- A welcoming outdoor classroom and picnic area that provides opportunities for learning and socializing
New playground features
- A large play structure for older kids
- A play structure for young kids
- Rubber surfacing
- Creative learning activities
- An outdoor classroom
- A picnic area
What's happeningReview the concept design for the new playground
We have been working closely with residents and organizations of the Downtown Eastside to understand the needs and opportunities for the renewed playground.
Based on the conversations and feedback a concept design has been developed. The new playground is tentatively scheduled to be constructed in the spring of 2024.
