Vancouver Waterfront Park

Discover Your Park

Use the Vancouver Waterfront Park as your launching point to experience the sights, sounds, scenic wonders and limitless recreational opportunities – all just a short drive from downtown Vancouver.

Bike, jog or stroll to Esther Short Park, Fort Vancouver National Historic Site and Officer’s Row at the National Historic Reserve.

There’s no place like it. Here, the mighty Columbia River, one of the world’s premier scenic rivers, flows past a major downtown area. The River is a magnet, drawing people to connect with one another and with the natural world. With a community park, river access, public spaces and expansive walking and biking trials, the Vancouver Waterfront Park is the natural extension of downtown Vancouver.

With the foundations being built today, the future of Vancouver’s waterfront looks bright. New access to 35 acres will include not only jobs, housing and shops, but a new 7-acre park that connects to the popular Renaissance Trail.

Picture yourself enjoying our beautiful natural resources as you bike, jog or stroll to Esther Short Park, Fort Vancouver National Historic Site and Officer’s Row. Vancouver, Washington, there’s no place like it!
