Cardero Park Walks Out Over Coal Harbour
Cardero Park is a 0.33 hectare linear space in Vancouver’s west end. It is situated next to the Westin Bayshore Hotel and Resort Marina, and extends into Coal Harbour, where people can enjoy the seawall, and watch the coming and going of floatplanes and boats in the harbour.
The harbour end of the park features a unique boardwalk that rounds out over the water from the outer edges of the park. From the boardwalk, there are spectacular views of Dead Man’s Island, <a href="""">Stanley Park and the North Shore.
Cardero Park also offers a tree-lined green space dotted with park benches that is perfect for a picnic, reading, or exercising. Because of its layout and design, it has been used for public art installations, like Wang Shugang’s The Meeting ‒ a series of red squatting figures with cupped hands ‒ part of the Vancouver Biennale celebrations from 2009-2011.
The Park is named for nearby Cardero Street. Cardero's Restaurant is located just steps away.
