The transformation of David Lam Park

I live across the street from David Lam Park which sits next to an elementary school on False Creek. This is what it looks like from my apartment on a normal day:


Okay... so maybe snow days aren't normal. That photo was taken back in November of 2006. You can  actually see the kids building a snow fort during their lunch break.

Here's another photo of, well... not exactly a normal day, but a nice summery day during the Vancouver Jazz Festival in June 2007. They were demonstrating the fire pumps:


And here's what the park looks like from the ground during those free afternoon Jazz Fest shows:





So at least you can sort of imagine what a normal day at David Lam Park looks like, right?

Well check out what David Lam Park looks like now!



Yup, they've paved it in its entirety for those free "Live City Yaletown" concerts which will be happening, well... sheesh! In 13 days today! 



But the good news is that I'll have an unobstructed view of the show directly from my apartment!

The bad news is that the park's going to be out of commission until June!
