Queen's Park - New Westminster
by Dad


The Rainbow Playground entrance

Jen made friends with a goat at the petting zoo

Activity: When I was a child I used to get this park confused with Queen Elizabeth Park in Vancouver.  Queen's Park is in New Westminster.  Queen's park is an all-around park, an oasis in an urban landscape.  As a teenager I remember the Queen's Park Arena for Friday night skating, and concerts, the Arenex for professional "all star" wrestling, the baseball stadium watching the Vancouver Mounties (I'm dating myself, aren't I?).  For kids, there's the Rainbow Playground, water park, and a petting zoo open from May to September.

Age group: All ages

Expense rating: Free

: The park's pretty big, nice picnic areas, and the "Rainbow Park" is a hit with kids in the summer.

Details: Queen's Park is located at 6th and McBride in New Westminster.  For more information call 604-527-4567.  Website: New Westminster Parks & Recreation

Area: New Westminster
