Fire destroys downtown Vancouver park, closed ‘indefinitely’

Clark County

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Park officials announced Monday Esther Short Park in downtown Vancouver has closed indefinitely after a fire destroyed the play structure.

A fence now surrounds the park to keep visitors off the unsafe structures until it can be removed.

Plans were already in place to add a new playground to the park later in the year. Vancouver Parks, Recreation & Cultural Services is considering adjusting that timeline and said they will continue sharing park updates.

The Vancouver Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
