Donated in 1958 by George Kidd, former president of BC Electric Company, this park provides a large expanse of trees (mostly of the willow and oak variety) on a mid-sized parcel of grass. 

Like many west side parks, if you live nearby it’s okay for a picnic, but its location next to Southwest Marine Drive makes it fairly noisy. 

If that doesn’t sound exciting, that’s because it isn’t.

But undeveloped triangle parks are a beacon of this city, and this is certainly one of them.
