While most parks surrounding community centres are large and a mishmash of different amenities, the ambitions for Kerrisdale are decidedly modest: a little garden with a sitting area, and a fun playground with two different structures (one for the 4-7 set, one for slightly older kids) that both have slides and climbing structures.

The sitting area in particular is unique — a small cement triangle with hedges on two sides to block the noise, and a small row of hedges along the hypotenuse, allowing the trees and garden to be easily viewed.
