Parks & Trails
Townsend Park is a 15 hectare park west of downtown Chilliwack. The park is named after Harold Townsend, who lived and farmed this land until 1946 when the City purchased it and began the process of developing a major public sports facility for ball sports and general leisure.
The park is equipped with a play area, change rooms, concession, washrooms and other amenities. The Wolfe family washroom is open from dawn to dusk. This outdoor facility also has a walking trail around its perimeter, which is approximately 2.3 km in length.
