Long Description:
This neighbourhood park features a small bandshell which hosts its own limited "Music in the Park" events throughout the summer. The park has an abundance of open, grassed area with large trees scattered around and benches and picnic tables here and there. There is a water spray park for the kids, washrooms and a drinking fountain.

In the southwest corner of the park are three basketball courts and four tennis courts. Beside those is a children's playground, then washroom/change rooms and a small concession stand. In the centre of the park is a nice gazebo for shaded picnicking.
