What is Brewers Park?

What is Brewers Park

Brewers Park in Vancouver is a beloved community space offering sports fields and playgrounds. It’s a good place for recreation and for families and people who want to engage in outdoor activities and relaxation.

Brewers Park is like three parks in one, with different sections for whatever you’re in the mood for. You’ve got your playing field, tennis and basketball courts, and a chill grassy area complete with a playground and wading pool. 

It’s all connected by these nice tree-lined paths and landscaped steps. Whether you’re looking to kick back in the shade, get a game of tennis going, or give your kids a good swing, this place has you covered.

This park has some serious history—it was actually one of the first spots designated as parkland back when South Vancouver was its own thing before being merged into Vancouver in 1929. 

Oh, and it’s named after William John Brewer, who was the big shot reeve of South Vancouver when it was incorporated in 1892.
