The City of Vancouver has purchased a lot and built a neighbourhood park on it, also opening nearby Yukon St. to safe travel by people on foot, bike, stroller and so on. Located at the NE corner of the intersection of 17th Ave and Yukon St.
In many ways, this park reminds me of the way West End traffic calming opened up streets from car thoroughfares into people places. Also very much like Jim Deva Plaza, but different in terms of design and surface treatment. Note the playground, the planters that incorporate benches, the chairs and the big rocks for kids to climb on.
