Visit Vancouver USA Recognizes Waterfront Park with Tourism Award
Visit Vancouver USA announced the City of Vancouver Parks and Recreation Department as the recipient of its 2018 Spirit of Tourism Award in recognition of the new Vancouver Waterfront Park opening later this year. The award recognizes the achievements of an individual, business, attraction or event that contributes to the vitality of the region by attracting visitors to the area. The 7.3-acre park is part of a 32-acre, high-density, mixed-use project will include office space, retail space and residential units. The Vancouver Waterfront Park will act as the focal point, incorporating public open spaces with the fluctuating character of the River and the site’s cultural history. A grand opening celebration is planned for September.
