“A real treasure and simply beautiful”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

I discovered this park purely by accident while on a recent business trip to Richmond. I had been staying at a nearby hotel when a sign for a park caught my eye. What a delightful surprise and what a beautiful oasis it is, in the middle of what I think is otherwise simply an ugly concrete jungle. The area is zen-like and tranquil, reminiscent of a Japanese garden. It is very tastefully landscaped, with gorgeous greenery, plants, flowers and trees around the lakes which are lined with lovely paths and benches all around. HIghly recommended if you are in the area--great for running (so much better than the busy streets of the neighbourhood!), walking, reading a book, or simply sitting and breathing.

“Stay Tuned”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

This beautiful park located in the heart of Richmond is undergoing a major face lift! The aquatic centre and ice arena is being expanded, the soccer fields and baseball diamonds are being moved. It will be interested to see how it all turns out. Stay tuned!

“Part of the Minoru Sport Complex, it offers added fun to your stay here. It has a playground plus running track, traill.”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Right now it is under heavy construction and not sure what they're doing. So watch as some trails are close and construction machines all over the place.

“Nice Walk... beautiful scenery”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

With beautiful scenery and a nice walk just keep us moving and moving. Ended up we did 5 rounds of the park. Perfect for a Beariful Spring!

“Washrooms are permanently occupied by homeless people”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

While the park is beautiful and there are rabbits which keep the kids engaged, be aware that the public washrooms in the park are permanently occupied throughout the day ( and night ). Apparently the situation had been like this for a number of years and city hall has yet to come up with a solution.
