Plan Your Route By Bus, Bike, Foot, or Car
Oppenheimer Park is accessible by foot, bike, car and is wheelchair accessible. It is bordered by the 400 blocks of Powell Street and Cordova Street, at the cross-streets of Jackson and Dunlevy. The #4 (Powell/UBC) and #7 (Nanaimo Station/Dunbar) buses go directly to the park, or you may take one of the many buses that go down East Hastings Street, such as the #14, #16, #20 and #95, all of which connect to the Canada Line’s Waterfront Station stop for those travelling from the Vancouver Airport (YVR), City of Richmond, and North Vancouver.
We encourage you to ride your bike to our festival! Powell Street Festival offers two free bike valet parking located at the Southwest Corner of Oppenheimer Park at the junction of Jackson Avenue and Cordova Streets, as well as one on Alexander Street near Jackson Avenue.
There is street parking in the neighbourhood blocks. Please note, during the festival, parking is not available along the streets bordering the park. There will be, however, one reserved space on Cordova Street for wheelchair accessible drop-off, and two reserved parking spaces for wheelchair users. Please call the office at 604-739-9388.
