Grimston Park

Located in the Connaught Heights area, Grimston Park is home to one of the few remaining wading pools in Metro Vancouver. The park offers tennis courts, a lacrosse box, sports fields, a terraced plaza, and trails.

Grimston Park was upgraded in 2010 and boasts a new playground, trails, wading pool improvements, signage, a terraced plaza and connection to the Rotary Cross-Town Greenway.


The playground features a tower, slide, swings, platform swing, spinning net, climbing wall and a water feature stream that operates using a hand water pump supplied by surplus water from the wading pool. In addition we have monkey bars, a slider track and a teeter totter.

Wading Pool

Grimston Park features one of the few remaining wading pools in Metro Vancouver. The wading pool is designed to allow toddlers to splash, play and cool down in the summer while becoming confident around water. A Parks and Recreation staff member is on duty while the pool is open (weather dependent, 18 degrees celsius). Please call 604.527.4567 if you have wading pool questions.


Grimston Park hosts two tennis courts. If players are waiting, please restrict your use to 30-minutes to accommodate all players fairly. Parks and Recreation programs have priority use for lessons and programs. The courts are not meant for dog walking, bikes, scooters, skate boards or roller blades.

Lacrosse Box

The lacrosse box is available for games and practices with priority use allocated to minor lacrosse.


The use of sports fields requires a booking with Parks and Recreation. Please call for details.
