Selina and I (Rebecca) are thrilled to announce that we are the newest residents of the Riley Park field house! We are the organizers behind the collective called Merakos. This means that for the next little while we will be hard at work making the field house your go-to hang out place.
I guarantee that we have the best field house location! And let me tell you why. First off, we are at 95 E. 32nd Ave, which is on Ontario Street right across from Hillcrest Community Center, near Queen Elizabeth Park. Not only are we in a thriving neighborhood with lots of cool houses, but there are also tons of restaurants, antique shops, record stores, coffee shops, farmers markets and more.
Some other reasons why our field house is the bomb!
the surrounding two hectares of park has a climbing boulder and a zip line!
it's right across from the Nat Bailey Stadium, which is home to the Vancouver Canadians baseball team and a farmers market
there are community gardens right outside
we have free events and groups, including yoga and art classes, community dinners, educational workshops and much more!
we are home to both Mat Collective and Kits Space
Lastly, I just want to give a big shout out to the Vancouver Park Board and everyone else who helped make this residency happen!
