Located in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, Oppenheimer Park has a storied past and has served numerous roles in the community throughout its 112 year history. This park has always been a place of personal and cultural expression - a place where marginalized communities have gathered with friends and neighbours to share common ground. In recent years, the facilities in Oppenheimer Park had fallen into disrepair, which had contributed to social challenges in the park and surrounding neighbourhood. The challenge for the park redesign was to create a public place that reflected the historical and cultural significance of the site, while meeting the recreational and social needs of this underserved community.
