About the Park
Everett Crowley is a green sanctuary. From the views of patterned Richmond farmlands to the tranquil New Kinross Creek and Avalon Pond, many people enjoy the variety of informal spaces in this park; there are many trails and quiet places to enjoy choruses of birds and a lush woodland feel.

History
Originally known as the Kerr Road Dump, this area was a closed landfill for 25 years before its official opening as a park in 1987. The site is named for Everett Crowley, long time resident and owner of Vancouver’s last working dairy called “Avalon”. Everett Crowley was also a Park Board Commissioner serving from 1962-1964.

Nature, in its amazing way of overcoming the earlier landfill insults, recovered over the nearly two decades resulting in a lovely wooded and hilly habitat frequented by birds and other urban wildlife which have found refuge in this botanically diverse landscape.
