Another of the legendary parks in the Vancouver area, this park is a perfect example of locals stepping up and creating new spots to session. As a DIY park made by the locals, the park was later fully sanctioned by the City. This park is an incredible experience and should be on your must session list. I really have to hand it to the locals; this is what a group of dedicated people can accomplish.

Leeside has an incredible history, which you can learn more about here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8nXXmhWdMg
