Oppenheimer Park | Place | Named after Vancouver’s second mayor, Oppenheimer Park is seen by some as the epicentre of the battle to reclaim the Downtown Eastside from the throes of drug use. It was conveniently closed during the 2010 Olympics for major beautification efforts. It plays host to the annual Powell St. Festival, which is straight up awesome…

Usage: “I wonder when the last time a game of baseball was played in Oppenheimer Park…”
