Forsyth Park is a 3.03 hectare (7.5 acres) community park, and the largest of 10 new parks being planned for City Centre.The park is located between 139 and 140 street, south of Forsyth Road Elementary School. It features a dog off-leash area, destination nature playground, and supporting picnic areas and pathways.
The park was designed through a community consultation process that included an open house and surveys.
Forsyth Park acts as a primary gathering space in the neighbourhood. The nature play area was funded by a $500,000 gift from TD Bank Group to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday.
Forsyth park offers a fully fenced in dog off-leash area of approximately 0.6 hectares (1.42 acres). The off-leash area includes open space, log play elements, a small natural forest area and separated areas for large dogs and small dogs. Explore the other dog off-leash parks across the City.
Street parking is available on 140 Street.
On May 2, 2019, Forsyth Park – the largest of 10 new parks being planned for City Centre – was awarded the Parks Excellence Award by the BC Recreation and Parks Association. With phase 1 completed in 2017, Forsyth Park was recognized as transforming the unused parkland into a social destination for the whole community.
