Everett Crowley Park in Vancouver

What a surprise! It was truly a large dog-walkers park.
We were looking for something to do whilst the kids eased themselves into their morning with the new born babe (May, 2015)!

Everett Crowley Park is Vancouver's 5th largest park, but was Vancouver's main landfill (the Kerr Road dump) from 1944 to 1967. Everett Crowley Park, a 40 hectare (100 acre) parcel of land in southeast Vancouver, is a unique place for recreation, nature appreciation, and wildlife habitat in the city.

Very fews birds, considering this was lush Vancouver! There are many parks in this city life. Interesting spot. I did find the yapping dogs, and the barking dogs, disconcerting. Who knew, though?!

Always amazing to see how a few people, working together, could create such a place in the heart of the city. I must admit I hardly have the energy. We had another marathon trip to Ottawa Hospital for an appointment, arising at 5:30 a.m., for an 8:15 appointment! Then there is my newest wrestle with poison ivy blisters. More on that after our trip!

There are a few homes bordering on this park, I photographed one, below.
What was amazing is seeing this dog walker tootling along with 6 dogs, without leashes!

People brought water jugs for the dog walkers. On the map, the red lines demarcate on-leash pathways.

The dogs must know the place well.
