Grimston Park, upgraded in 2010, boasts a new playground, trails, wading pool improvements, signage, a terraced plaza and connection to the Rotary Cross-Town Greenway. In addition, the park was slightly reconfigured and enlarged to accommodate the Ministry of Transportation improvements to the Queensborough Bridge egress.
These improvements will increase your enjoyment of the park that is full of amenities valued by neighbourhood residents and visitors.

In 2010 a new playground was built based on community input and features a new 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. The existing monkey bars, slider track and teeter totter have been refurbished and incorporated with the new features. As well, all salvageable lumber and gravel from the existing playground was reused in the new playground. Click here for a PDF of the playground rendering.
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 lifeguard is on duty while the pool is open, generally July to Labour Day from 12:00 - 4:00 pm. Please call 604.777.5121 if you have wading pool questions.
