“Not a good park at all.”
#18 in Hastings-Sunrise
3000 East Pender Street
There are a number of things you can do at the park surrounding Hastings Community Centre, from basketball to tennis to having a picnic in the flat area surrounded by trees. One of the baseball diamonds is of tournament-quality, and provides views of Playland across the street.
But the overall feel of the park is of a disjointed place (common to many parks with a community centre right in the middle, the outside amenities designed in a haphazard fashion), of a loud place (due to cars roaring on Hastings Street as they make their way to Highway 1), and of an annex to Hastings Park next door.
In other words, the problems that plague the park aren’t exactly fixable, but it still serves its purpose for people living nearby adequately enough.
