A brand new waterfront park is set to make its debut at Northeast False Creek this Sunday, September 30th, 2018.

Concord Pacific worked with the False Creek Residents Association and City of Vancouver over the past year to plan a 3.5 acre waterfront pop-up park that reflects the needs of the growing community in the Northeast False Creek neighbourhood.

Named Concord Community Park, the space will feature:

  • Large lawn spaces
  • Beach area with a beach volleyball net
  • Seating logs
  • Picnic tables
  • Ping pong tables
  • Basketball court
  • Ball hockey rink
  • Children’s games painted onto paved pathways and other surfaces

“Concord is excited to provide Concord Community Park for the greater neighbourhood. We have been providing the City with amenities for more than 20 years, including three kilometres of seawall, the Roundhouse Community Centre, three daycares, playgrounds, and of course, parks” said Senior Vice-President of Planning Matt Meehan.

It’s important to note that the park will not be a permanent attraction. After temporarily serving the community for a couple of years, developers plan to re-design it for the future. At this point, we’ll have to wait to see what that includes.

Park Operations

Dragon Boat BC will operate and program the Concord Community Pop Up Park. They plan to support the operation of the park by employing disadvantaged youth and youth-at-risk from the
local paddling community.

The park will open at 11:30 a.m., right after the CIBC Run for the Cure. Celebrations will include music, children’s entertainment, yoga and a free community BBQ.

The park and its operating costs are being fully funded by Concord Pacific.
