I had to visit a friend at the hospital, at the northwest corner of the park, and was looking forward to a stroll around the adjacent lagoons (aka Minoru Lakes). Imagine the disappointment to find this area is closed off for about a year! Still lots to do, but I feel like I just experienced a perfect set of teeth, but with one of the front ones missing.

Established in 1907, Minoru Park has been described as the “green heart of Richmond’s City Centre.” Given its designation as a multi-purpose space – with a more traditional “leisure side” and an “active side” – I’d say its description as a “green heart” for Richmond is quite apt. On the one hand, you have the lovely Minoru lakes; paved and gravel walking paths; beautiful gardens and historic Minoru Chapel. On the other hand, you have the Clement Track; basketball court, multiple tennis courts, baseball diamond, 2 bowling greens and a cricket pitch; and, Minoru Arenas, Cultural Centre and Aquatic Centre. In short, one could easily argue that Minoru Park is a park for all seasons.

Curiously, despite Minoru’s status as a major park in the Greater Vancouver Area, this was my first time actively exploring part of it. My partner and I decided to visit Minoru because, well, we were pulled in by the promise of delightful cherry blossoms – and we weren’t disappointed. There were some pretty epic blooms to be had near the Clement Track. As we photographed the delicate pink blossoms, I couldn’t help but notice this interesting sculpture off in the distance – David Harder’s “Together.” And, given my enjoyment of public art, you just know I had to go in for a closer look; so, I took the “scenic route” and walked the track until coming upon the sculpture. When you get up close to “Together,” you witness its true beauty: Made up of over 300 silhouettes of citizens FROM Richmond + the local ecology, the piece takes a unique look at concepts of “community” and “togetherness.” In a very real sense, “Together” is a physical representation of this time and this place – and that makes it epic.

While our time at Minoru Park was relatively short, we enjoyed it. The cherry blossoms were a joy, and seeing people out and about reminded us that maybe – just maybe – a version of normalcy isn’t too far away.

Nice little place to escape and relax for a bit. It's a large enough area that you can disappear into, find a bench, and just sit and relax for a while.
Or watch a bit of lawn bowling to slow down the pace of your day.
Good for some nice summertime photos also as there are a number of spots close to the water which are quite photogenic.

This is a 45 acre multi-use facility in downtown Richmond, adjacent the City Hall and one of the mojor shopping centres. Also close to Skytrain. I have been familiar with the southern, improved (library, pool, cultural centre) for years, but only recently discovered the ponds and trails on the northern end near the hospital.
What a hidden gem!
As my photos, and the photos of others will show, there are asphalt trails winding through and around the lagoons. Interspersed are benches for catching one's breath, or simply resting, meditating, and communing with nature.
The only danger noted (at least during daylight hours) was the Canada Geese who seem to think they own the place.
