Built in 1927 as part of a subdivision of houses that are now among the most valued properties in the entire province, Westmount is another one of the city’s underdeveloped triangular parks, this one on a fairly steep hill.

However, there’s a few things that make it valuable for the community, including a small playground good for older toddlers, and a pair of swings where you can peer through the many Douglas Fir trees to get a glimpse of English Bay. 

Those trees are also dense enough to provide some shade and a somewhat interesting walk, making it perfectly adequate for the nearby community, if not worth directly seeking out.
