Our take…

Minoru Park is one of the largest city parks located in the centre of the city, and is easily accessed on all sides by public transit. This beautiful park features in the north end a large duck pond surrounded by flower gardens, and walking paths. As you stroll through the park many park benches are spread throughout for those wishing to sit and rest for a while. During the sunny summer days you may stop, and watch the members lawn bowling at the private club in the north end of the park. The Richmond Auto Body Budgies play baseball at their home field located in the park. Cricket matches are also played in the large field behind the baseball diamond, soccer games, and track and field events are also held in the south end of the park. There is an aquatic center, arena (open in season), and tennis courts also are located in the south end of the park. Shopping Centers, Hotels, and other attractions are also very close to the park.
