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.
Our new 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.
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. To ensure safety, a play leader is on duty while the pool is open (weather dependent), generally July 1st to Labour Day from 12:00 - 4:00 pm. Please call 604.777.5121 if you have wading pool questions.
Grimston Park hosts three tennis courts for tennis enthusiasts. If players are waiting, please restrict your use to 30-minutes to accommodate all players fairly. Parks and Recreation programs have priority use with courts. Please, the courts are not meant for dog walking, bikes, scooters, skate boards or roller blades.
The lacrosse box is available for games and practices with priority use allocated to minor lacrosse. Please call 604.527.4567 if you have questions.
The use of sports fields requires a booking with Parks and Recreation. Please call for details.
Washrooms are available April - October from 8:30 am to dusk and November - March from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.
