This Incredible 9 Acre Park In Vancouver Will Include Rooftop Space On A Mall

News
Oakridge Mall

There are a number of beautiful green spaces throughout Vancouver; however, the incredible rooftop park planned for Oakridge Mall is truly incredible.

For one, there’s nothing like it in the city. Of course, Stanley Park boasts an impressive 1,000 acres of vibrant park space, but it’s a bit of a trek to get to. Conversely, this 9 acre plan fuses the outdoors with commercial space. As a result,  visitors need only step outside to immerse themselves in the vibrant layout.

In December, the park board asked the public to weigh in on what they would like to see happen with the space. 610 respondents from within the City of Vancouver answered a series regarding proposed layouts. From here, the board will make a decision based on the preferred concept this summer.
