The 7.3-acre Vancouver Waterfront Park is part of a 32-acre, high density, mixed use urban development, The Waterfront Vancouver, that opened in September 2018.

This community park incorporates public open spaces with the Columbia River edge. The Columbia River Renaissance Trail connects Vancouver Waterfront Park to Wintler Park, over 5 miles away. The iconic cable-stayed Grant Street Pier connects the park's eastern and western halves. A water feature will open in Spring 2019. Portions of the park are still under construction, but the park will remain open to the public during this time.

The ongoing measles outbreak in Clark County is a good reminder that the best protection against measles is the measles, mumps, and rubella vaccine (MMR). If you think you or someone in your family has not received MMR vaccine, contact your health care provider for immunizations or a blood test as soon as possible.  You can also check or your or your children’s immunization records online at MyIR:
