Named for the pioneering politician who was the first Black Canadian woman to be elected to provincial office, Rosemary Brown Park is a newer park built in conjunction with the mixed-use development that sits on top of the old Carling brewery. 

The park itself, weirdly separate from the connecting Arbutus Greenway Park, has a nice design for such a small space, with one area for sitting and a tiny playground for kids. 

But the playground is only intended for the smallest of toddlers, the apartments next door are a little too close to make the park feel fully comfortable if you don’t live there, and there are much larger and more interesting parks directly north (Arbutus Greenway) and west (Connaught).
