Where Are Our Parks?

March 1, 2022


Vancouver City Council today received and approved a report on parks in the city. The report included a 37-page listing of all the permanent and designated parks (see here: https://council.vancouver.ca/20220301/documents/r8.pdf).

I read the report with interest but noted that two important Grandview parks (Salsbury Park at Salsbury & Adanac, and Mosiac Creek Park on Charles Street) were missing from the inventory.

Given the historical rapacity with which CoV Planning and their developer buddies treat our neighbourhood, the absence of these parks from an official inventory is worrying, to say the least. I have written to Parks Board for their comments but have yet to hear from them.

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and

the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and

winter in the shade.” — Charles Dickens
