Prior to World War II, Oppenheimer Park was the hub of a thriving Japanese Canadian community in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The park has always been a historical, memorial, and spiritual place, as well as a meeting place for different communities. Today, it’s known to many as the “living room of the Downtown Eastside.” Oppenheimer Park provides social, educational, recreational, and cultural programs and services to a diverse neighbourhood. Regular programming includes soccer, baseball, music, and arts and crafts. Staff also provide nutritious food as part of the daily routine.
