Hawthorne Rotary Park is located between Guildford and Whalley, and has a large playground and water park. A number of picnic tables and open spaces as well as washrooms and changing rooms make it a great spot for family outings. Nature trails meander through the park's forests, which consist mostly of Paper Birch, Red Alder and Black Cottonwood.
Within the park you'll find the stunning Hawthorne Gardens that feature a variety of mature rhododendrons, as well as a number of walking paths and benches to enjoy the surroundings.
In addition to the 105 Avenue Connector and Hawthorne Rotary Park Improvements Project completed in spring 2019, the City is working on further improvements to Hawthorne Rotary Park. For a quick glimpse of what's to come, see the Overall Park Improvement Plan.
