Strathcona Park – Vancouver BC
Strathcona Park lies along Prior Street between China Town and Commercial Drive. It’s a fair size park with lots of room to play baseball, soccer, it even has a small skate park. A great place if you have kids and dogs so both can play.
I maybe a bit bias about this park as I live close by and use it all the time. Our Dogs love it, they know every nook and cranny of it. So much so that when they wander off, I know they’re fine.
Mornings as you wander around you’ll see elderly doing thai chi, moms with their babies and some runners. A group usually gathers of familiar faces with a chuck it in one hand and a coffee in the other. As the dogs play the adults watch while discussing current events. I always find it interesting that we know each other but only by our dogs names and yet talk as if we’ve known each other for a long time; which I guess we have but through our dogs.
Stratcona is a fabulous neighborhood filled with beautiful houses and great little coffee shops like The Union, Benny’s, Wilder Snail and Finches. Perfect on a fall day to take a stroll through after your time in the park.
