Final Score


A block north and a block west from Commercial and Broadway is the small neighbourhood park W.C. Shelly, named for one of the city’s earlier park commissioners. 

A small but adequate playground for kids around 3 to 6 is in the middle, with garden planters and benches surrounding it. There’s a decent amount of green space on either side and a path meandering through, but there’s a bit too much noise coming from the SkyTrain and the park overall is a little too exposed to feel particularly enjoyable.
