Waterfront Esplanade


Creating a vibrant downtown and riverfront!

Waterfront Esplanade and park was developed with a unique waterfront theme to connect visitors with the Fraser River.

Inspiring Horticulture

Along Waterfront Esplanade, you will find amazing horticultural displays through flower beds, unique trees and our famous hanging baskets.

Park benches, view points, interpretive signage, public art and Riverfront Market make this walk a regional draw. Click here for a virtual tour.

Quayside Playground

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 the World's Tallest Tin Soldier.

Dog Walkers

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.
