Heywood Park

Heywood Park is a 16 hectare park situated at the western boundary of the City of North Vancouver. Its prominent location on Marine Drive, also make it the western gateway to the City, and the adjacent Hamilton and Pemberton Heights residential neighbourhoods. The park also provides a natural buffer for Mackay Creek, which is a locally significant salmon bearing stream.

The park has three distinct areas, including the lower developed park fronting Marine Drive at the south end; the upper forested natural areas of the Mackay Creek ravine, and the Hamilton all-weather sports fields at the northeast corner of the site.

In 2010, the City recognized that a number of significant infrastructure improvements were required in Heywood Park. A new concept for the park was developed with public input and a master plan was endorsed by Council in October 2010.

The implementation of the master plan was completed in phases. Phase 1 was completed in 2011 which included upgrades to the playground and washroom at the south end of the park. Phase 2 was completed in 2013, and included additional improvements to the park edge along Marine Drive, significant trail work within the upper forested area and major planting.
