Sea level rise

East Park includes a portion of the False Creek shoreline and is entirely within the False Creek floodplain. As such, it is important to plan for sea level rise. Land in the East Park area is low and flat, and is therefore at greater risk of flooding relative to higher elevations in the city. Current projections estimate that one metre of sea level rise will be experienced in 2100 and an additional two metres of sea level rise by 2200 [source: False Creek Coastal Adaptation Plan]. The planning process for East Park will build on the City’s current initiatives related to sea level rise adaptation, including the False Creek Coastal Adaptation Plan (see ‘Documents’ in the side panel).
