New Brighton Park in need of repairs. A section of the waterfront still cordoned off after many months

A small section of the New Brighton Park waterfront is still cordoned off. We noted back in April that this section of seawall near the Ballantyne Pier memorial was fenced off, and had already been fenced off for months.

There’s still a ‘Closed until further notice’ sign on the fencing and no repairs appear to have been made.

New Brighton Park is arguably one of the most important parks in the eastern part of Vancouver. It’s the only park with oceanfront access east of Main Street. Here’s an open question: Would parks in other parts of the City be given a higher priority for repairs? We’ve included a few photos of the area below.

  1. Need spring/summer bus service to the Park. From Kootenay bus loop via Hastings, Renfrew, McGill.. Former bus route no. 40 served te park for over 40 years.

  2. It’s a fair question about being fair “Would parks in other parts of the City be given a higher priority for repairs?”

    But, given that world famous Kits pool is still shut down, too, it would be more a question of either general incompetence at City Hall. Or maybe that’s unfair? Maybe they’re just trying to optimize the money put out for “studies” and “consulting fees”?
