Northeast False Creek Park

The waterfront park development will include lawns, a skate park and gardens

The City of Vancouver has released the renderings of its ambitious 11-acre development Northeast False Creek Park. The park is being designed by internationally acclaimed landscape architect James Corner, known for his work on the High Line in New York City.

The development involves the controversial removal of both the Georgia and Dunsmuir viaducts with a proposed new Carrall Street promenade. The park will provide a connective area between Northeast False Creek and Chinatown/Gastown with a pedestrian bridge connecting the northern and southern sections of the park. Northeast False Creek Park will be designed in such a way as to maximize the area's open water, mountain and skyline views.  

"The early draft plan for Northeast False Creek is based on some of the most extensive public consultation that the City has ever done," said Gil Kelley, General Manager of Planning for the City of Vancouver, in a release. "We are excited by the opportunities for a really active waterfront area, design ideas for a dynamic urban village that we have worked on landowners in the area, how the park is shaping up, and the replacement plan for the viaducts."

Have a look at some of the city's renderings of Northeast False Creek Park below.
