#148: MacDonald Park

“could use a little TLC.”

#6 in Sunset

300 East 44th Avenue

For Kids


For Adults






Final Score


One gives higher marks to modest parks that achieve their purpose than larger ones that don’t, which is why little MacDonald comes in here. 

A simple city block park at 44th Avenue one block east of Main, MacDonald has a large tennis court and an expansive if aged playground. 

But the playground’s design is good — a wooden structure with multiple slides, along with devices that let kids propel themselves from one end of the playground to the other — and the many trees give a lovely neighbourhood feel, particularly in the heat of summer. 

It’s been an unassuming neighbourhood park for decades, but it comes together nicely as a simple place where people of all ages can congregate, so our complaints are minimal.
