Parks & Trails
Kinsmen Park, northeast of downtown, is 2 hectares of land that has been in the care of the City since 1967. Over the years, the trees planted early have matured to provide great shaded areas. Completed by large, open, grass areas, a picnic area, tennis courts, a playground, asphalt looping pathway and washrooms, this park has become a favourite destination for area residents.
In 2013, the tennis courts were named in remembrance of Chilliwack City Councillor Dorothy Kostrzewa.
In 2014, a new Kinsmen Park entrance link was installed to facilitate greater connection of this park for residents living to the south of the park.
The playground features a large play structure with three slides and four climbing units for 5-12 year old children, as well as a smaller version with spring toys for 2-5 year old children.
The City of Chilliwack has partnered with a number of local organizations and non-profit groups to develop an Adopt-a-Park and Adopt-a-Trail program. Groups volunteer their time to cleanup parks and trails in Chilliwack, to keep the community looking its best!
Created as a supporting document to Chilliwack's Official Community Plan (OCP) the Greenspace Plan and supplementary Trail Network Plan sets out the City's goals and visions for developing new parks and trails over the coming decades.
The City of Chilliwack has over 100 parks and natural areas which together make up over 400 hectares of green space.
