A small park anchoring the west end of the Arbutus Greenway, Rosemary Brown Park is a charming place to sit and relax. Colourful flowers, a tiny crabapple grove, and benches help create a cozy and comfortable place to visit alone or with friends.
The site has an interesting history as it was once the location of the Brewmaster’s house at one of Vancouver’s first beer companies with many elements and equipment from the Vancouver/Carling breweries now incorporated into the larger park’s landscape design. The park was designed by Durante Kruek Landscape Architects.
On June 17th, 2005 this park was dedicated and named for Rosemary Brown, a former Member of the Legislative Assembly who served the Vancouver-Burrard riding from 1972-1979. Ms. Brown died in 2003 and the park was officially opened on the anniversary of her birth.
