The Vancouver Park Board followed city staff’s recommendation and has voted in favour of tearing down all but a small piece of the Jericho Marginal Wharf.
From the CBC:
The board voted to destroy all but the most eastern part of the wharf, which will be repaired and upgraded to create a viewpoint extending out over the water. One or two interpretive signs would outline the wartime origins of the deck and its postwar evolution.
The remaining area would be restored to a natural beach. The removal will cost $1.9 million.
