#1 of 8 in Parks in Vernon
Escape the hustle and bustle of Vernon at Polson Park, a verdant space combining lush greenery and plenty of sports facilities. For some peace and quiet, head to the intricately manicured Japanese garden, donated by the city's Japanese community. Depending on the season, you might catch a game of soccer or tennis here, or you can get active yourself along the running trails or at the lawn bowling area. Keep your eye out for the park's floral clock, installed in 1958, and stop by the duck pond to see the resident foul.

  • I've been here a few time. It's a lovely park. The kids really loved the play areas. The green space is so beautiful.  more »
  • Just moved to Vernon, and one of our favourite places to visit is this park. It is great for a stroll through light forest along the river. Large grass fields and lots of benches for relaxing, picnics...  more »
  • Sadly this once beautiful and safe park has been over run with homeless. There is a tent city and lots of garbage throughout the park.  more »

  • Beautiful park with a big playground, spray park, tennis courts, outdoor gym, walking paths, Japanese gardens, small bridges, lots of flowers, and a healthy populations of ducks. When I bring my kids we usually bring some bread to feed the ducks. Recommend not going when it’s dark out and keep a very close eye on your kids because lately there have been a lot of homeless people living in the park.
  • Nice but a horrible toxic smell coming from the area. I couldnt breathe and when i asked a city worker he said theyve been trying to find the source for years.
  • Nice park...people feed the ducks and geese illegally and you cant walk without them flocking around you...be prepared to step in some you know what.
  • Great for kids, walking, ducks to watch. They put on all kinds of activities for kids and families.
  • Wish the city would spend more time and effort keeping this beautiful park clean
