Where to find green spa­ces near King West’s con­crete cor­ri­dor King West is in the mid­dle of the city’s con­crete jun­gle, but the strip’s not with­out green spa­ces.

Saint An­drew’s Play­ground (450 Ade­laide West) is a small park with a kids’ play­ground and an off-leash dog area. It’s the per­fect des­ti­na­tion for a quick walk dur­ing your lunch break, and af­ter a few vis­its you’ll see that a lot of peo­ple in the park are get­ting to know each other.

Stan­ley Park ( 76 Wal­nut) is larger, with more open space and a siz­able of­fleash area for dogs. It also has a bas­ket­ball court, two ten­nis courts, a play­ground, a shuf­fle­board court and a small out­door pool.

Though it’s in the heart of King West, Stan­ley Park re­mains rel­a­tively quiet. It’s a great op­tion for those who don’t want to deal with Trinity Bell­woods’ mas­sive crowds come sum­mer.
