Which Vancouver Park has the Country's Largest Artificial Sports Field?
Located in downtown Vancouver on Expo Boulevard, Andy Livingstone Park is home to the country’s largest artificial playing field for softball, field hockey, football and soccer. With basketball courts, tennis courts, ultimate Frisbee fields, skateboard parks, two field houses, a playground and public washrooms, this 4.2-hectare park in the heart of the city is a popular destination for athletes of all kinds.
Each year, a variety of events and tournaments take place at Andy Livingstone Park, including the Vancouver International Soccer Festival.
Andy Livingstone Park also offers city-dwellers a scenic green-space where they can escape the busy pace of the city and enjoy a peaceful walk with the dog, a rigorous sport with friends or just sit and enjoy the surroundings. The park features curving trails and a cobble-bottomed stream that leads to a pond, and seating area, and a waterfall.
Named for long-term Vancouver Park Board Commissioner Andy Livingstone, who served Vancouver from 1969 to 1988, the park officially opened on June 3rd, 1995.
The park is close to Vancouver’s Chinatown and Rogers Arena, with the Georgia and Dunsmuir Viaducts running along the south side.
