About the Park
This small park, surrounding the Kerrisdale Community Centre, offers a quiet and shaded plaza, small lawn, and children’s playground. Beautiful rose beds, trees, ferns, and rhododendrons help create a pleasant sanctuary in the heart of Kerrisdale, an ideal location for morning tai chi or an afternoon stroll.
History
The most significant trivia about this park is that it was once the site of the City Hall for the Point Grey Municipality before amalgamation of the City of Vancouver in 1929. This park is often confused with Kerrisdale Park which is the site of the Kerrisdale Arena located on East Boulevard near West 41st Avenue. The Kerrisdale Community Centre, which was funded through a neighbourhood improvement bylaw (i.e. local residents voted to pay more taxes over a set period to fund the project) in 1950, was officially opened in 1952.
