Esther Short was a homesteader who bequeathed the land to the city with the stipulation that it always remain a park - it is the oldest public park in the Pacific Northwest.  In 2005 the southeast corner plaza containing the bell tower was named Propstra Square in honor of George Propstra.

Farmers’ Market was a seasonal open-air market until the summer of 2005 when the Vancouver Housing Authority designed and built a multi-use, award-winning complex which included housing, retail shops and inside quarters for the market. During the summer months, the market still expands to the outside streets. The top border features the Farmers Market logo.
