We love to go to local parks so will be reviewing parks in New Westminster. Our family has two children, ages 5 and 12. When we go to the park we look for a number of things that will make it a good park. So it is fitting that the first park we review is our local park:
This park has it all. It is easily accessible by transit. It has a large playing field for soccer or any running that needs to be done. It has a baseball diamond with dugouts, bleachers and a wash-room open all year ! There are large trees for admiring and providing shade on hot and sunny days, picnic tables, two playgrounds to suit all ages and swings for babies and older kids. Kids can enjoy teeter-todders, slides, lots of thing to climb on, tires, structures and even a spray park that is open in good weather.
As it is summer now (June 2010 ) the wild flowers are all in bloom on the Columbia side of the park. It is a pink paradise today.
