A new park with a unique bike repair station is officially opening at Yukon Street and 17th Avenue in the Riley Park neighbourhood.

However, it doesn’t have a name and the Vancouver Park Board is seeking suggestions from residents. A park naming committee will review suggested names and create a shortlist for Board Commissioners to vote on.

The public can learn more about the city’s newest park and the Name Your Park process between 8 and 11:30 am at Yukon and 17th streets. Live music, coffee and pastries will be available and a bike expert from Our Community Bikes will be on-site to provide basic repairs.
