This 5-acre park is located in the North Image Neighborhood of Northeast Vancouver just south of Fourth Plain Boulevard. The park opened in 2021 and features a unique playground where visitors can interact with dinosaur-themed play equipment and dig for fossils in the sand. Hours: 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Nikkei (pronounced NEE-kay) is a Japanese word used to identify the community of Japanese emigrants and their descendants. The name was selected by neighbors through a park naming survey. The name Nikkei Park was chosen to honor the Japanese American truck farmers who grew crops in the area before World War II. Truck farmers were a vital part of the local food supply. By 1930, 47% of truck farmers in Clark County were Japanese American. During World War II, Vancouver's Japanese American farmers were forcibly removed from their homes and sent to "internment" prison camps. Nikkei Park remembers the families that experienced great injustice and honors their legacy with a place that is filled with beauty, joy and a sense of belonging.
