Waterfront Esplanade and park was developed with a unique waterfront theme to connect visitors with the Fraser River.
Along Waterfront Esplanade, you will find amazing horticultural displays through flower beds, unique trees and our famous hanging baskets.
In 2011, the Waterfront Esplanade will be expanded with the completion of the Westminster Pier Park creating a vibrant riverfront walk and park system.
The adjoining Quayside Park offers two playgrounds. The main playground, located near the train bridge at the west end of the Esplande, features water theme play features such as a submarine, lighthouse, swings, sand, lookout towers, water fountain, washrooms, park benches and picnic tables. The second playground features a single tugboat play structure, popular with children of all ages, located near the Riverfront Market and World's Tallest Tin Soldier.
The Quayside off-leash dog area, located at the west end of the park, makes Waterfront Esplanade a popular destination for dog walking. Dog walkers are asked to respect the park and local residents by keeping their dogs on leash, quiet and by cleaning up after them.
