Nature / Park
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.

  • Loved visiting this park! It was beautiful with all the flowers, bridges and trees!! I am glad we decided to visit this park.  more »
  • Drove thru this park admiring all the summer flowers. We were looking for the flower clock. Found it, the Canadian maple leaf in red, beautiful. Lots of walking trails, but no dogs allowed.  more »
  • Stopped to cool of a kid. Two hours later and still having fun. The park is super clean and a great walk around as well. We spent sometime at the play park as well. Always fun!  more »

  • Beautiful and lots of birds to feed but because of all the feeding the park is covered in poop and gets veey very stinky. All in all though the park maintenance people are pretty good at keeping up with it. The biggest problem is the homeless and their habits. Scary place to be sometimes because of it. Also it'd closed at night and there's no lights. I don't think parks should close.
  • No water parks open until July. It's a nice park but there are no dogs allowed anywhere which sucks a bit, huge pond full of ducks, tennis courts, totems, zen rock gardens for stoners and very decent and new kids playground.
  • Great big park with lots of grass. Playground for all ages Swings. Even Creek with ducks and geese. As well as nice.
  • It's a nice park buy only between dawn and dusk. After dark I wouldnt be caught dead there.
  • Great park with lots of activities available. Water park, duck pond, swing set, gym, lawn bowling, skate park, running track and tennis. Also great for taking grad/wedding photos or just going for a stroll
