Some of the city’s parks seem like the city ran out of money halfway through the process, and this field just north of BC Children’s Hospital is a textbook example of that. 

A field house with washrooms and large lights for evening rugby and baseball provide plenty of potential, as do the grand trees that border the park’s north side.

But no benches, no changes in the topography and no amenities for kids make it underwhelming for any use other than sport, or a short reprieve from a hospital stay. 

It serves its purpose adequately enough — until you consider that Douglas Park is just four blocks north.
