Throughout the day, people visit Tisdall Park to walk the curving paths that surround the park. The magnificent catalpa trees provide ample shade to stop for lunch, a chat, or even a game of cards. The park is named for its bounding street.
The park features a seniors' wellness circuit located in the northwest part of the park. The circuit is a series of 13 activity stations including a cardio stepper, squat press, balance steps and tai chi wheels that are designed to help seniors – and everyone else, too – stay mobile and physically active. The circuit was opened in July, 2009 and was partially funded with a $100,000 ActNow BC grant.
