Riley Park

Riley Park is home to the Vancouver Olympic/Paralympic Centre and to Nat Bailey Stadium—home of the Vancouver Canadians baseball team. The area has two thriving hubs of unique boutiques, grocers, and restaurants: along Main Street and along Cambie Street. Shops on Main are also known for locally-designed clothing and antique furniture. From Kingsway to City Hall, Riley Park runs south to include the Mountain View cemetery and beautiful Queen Elizabeth Park, atop Little Mountain.

Neighbourhood history and heritage

Riley Park's origins date back to 1893, when pioneers logged Little Mountain and cut trails around its base. By the early 1900s, a scattered community began to thrive on upper Main Street. Its residents were primarily Little Mountain quarry workers, who mined volcanic rock for use surfacing the area's first roads.
