Crab Park


Crab Park | Place | Located at the north end of Main Street, Crab Park’s real name is actually Portside Park and it isn’t really a park (it’s more like a long-term loan by the Port Authority). Although there would have been crab shacks once lining the shores of Burrard Inlet, the “crab” in this case is a backronym that stands for Create A Real Available Beach, which was the name of the committee that pressured the Park Board to get it made.

Usage | “We’re having a bonfire at Crab Park tonight.”explore-the-lexicon
