Dawn until Dusk
Forsyth Park is a 3.03 hectare (7.5 acres) community park located between 139 and 140 Street, south of Forsyth Road Elementary School. It features a dog off-leash area, a 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.
Street parking is available on 139 and 140 Street.
On May 2, 2019, Forsyth Park was awarded the Parks Excellence Award by the BC Recreation and Parks Association. It was recognized as transforming unused parkland into a social destination for the whole community.
