Tea Swamp Park is a small and beautiful park that is a pleasure to visit. Between a striking arbour and colourful community gardens, a curving dry stone stream and pathway slope down to a playground and rose-lined seating area. The name is a reminder of the Labrador tea plants that once flourished in the area.
The park was officially named Tea Swamp in 1985 after the Park Board was petitioned by the Brewery Creek Historical Society. The society had done extensive research to show that a large swamp had once been located at this site and it was the headwater of Brewery Creek, one of Vancouver’s original streams.
