This park was across the street from my hotel. We took several walks around the park. On Saturday and Sunday there was a farmers market.

The Vancouver Marathon was going on while we were visiting, so the park was filled with runners, partiers, etc. There is a small rose garden and the roses were in full and beautiful bloom. Lots of space to relax, sit, and people watch.
