About the Park
The park site (sometimes refered to as Hinge Park, but not yet officially named) includes a rainwater wetland, play park for children, benches, grass and picnic areas. A dog off-leash area is located within a fenced area in the northwest corner of the park.

The park includes a rainwater wetland with native plants that will slowly naturalize. Picnic tables, benches and docks dot the landscape. A large children's play area has state-of-the-art play equipment, a story circle, a big rusty bridge constructed from sewer pipe and a water pump with metal runnels at the top of a small hill. It is a park for children to explore and for adults to quietly enjoy.

A dog off-leash area is located within a fenced area in the northwest corner of the park.

Histroy
The park was created as part of the 2010 Winter Games Athletes Village at Southeast False Creek. The former industrial land was transformed into a complete community and includes Creekside Community Recreation Centre, housing and commercial space.
