About the Park
Norquay Park is a popular spot on jogging routes, for tai chi, or for relaxing in the sunshine. The northern portion of the park was redesigned in 2011. New features include a rain garden which filters runoff from the new water spray park recharging the groundwater and providing water for landscape plants during the summer, a playground, sport court, tai chi area, pedestrian paths, benches and mosaics created by local artists and residents.
History
The park was named for the nearby school in 1909 when it fell within the district of South Vancouver (before the city was amalgamated in 1929). The name comes from an eminent Canadian, John Norquay, who was Premier of Manitoba when he first visited Vancouver in 1886.
