About Everett Crowley Park
Everett Crowley Park is 40 hectares (100 acres) located in the southeast corner of Vancouver. After being extensively logged in the 1920s, this beautiful natural park became the "Kerr Road Dump." It served as Vancouver's main landfill for decades, completely filling the Kinross Ravine and destroying Kinross Creek until the dump closed in 1967. In 1987, the site was officially designated "Everett Crowley Park," in memory of the former Town Commissioner, community activist and owner of the historic Avalon Dairy.
Today, Vancouver's fifth largest park is being restored with native species and natural habitat to create an urban wilderness that serves public recreation and improves the area's ecological integrity.
