About the Park
Bates Park is tucked into the northeast corner of the city, where the Second Narrows Bridge can be glimpsed through a tangle of native trees. Summer is an especially nice time to visit this tiny park, when dragonflies hover over the wildflowers and golden grasses that lead down to a portion of the Trans-Canada Trail.
History
Bates Park is named for the civic-spirited owner of the property, who near the end of his life, bequeathed his most prized possession to the Vancouver Park Board. This act of generosity allowed park staff to assemble several surrounding properties and join them together for a larger greenspace in this park deficient community.
