As though sitting next to the 763-hectare Pacific Spirit Park wasn’t enough, Wesbrook Village has been bolstered with five boutique parks of its own. Each field or playground is named after a Nobel laureate in keeping with the academic surrounds. Each park has its own children’s play area and, in some, you’ll discover community gardens, a baseball diamond or two, water features, and a happy crowd of ducks. All told, Wesbrook boasts more than 15 hectares of park and greenways.
