About Lionel Courchene Park

Lionel Courchene Park is located between Johnston Heights Secondary and William F. Davidson Elementary School in South Guildford.

Established in 2001, Lionel Courchene Park is predominantly an active park, featuring 4 baseball diamonds, a t-ball diamond, a soccer field and a washroom building. Two of the larger diamonds are equipped with bleachers for league play. The fields are busy in the summer, so be sure to book a field if you are interested in a game or team practice.

Lionel Courchene Park is also home to two community gardens.

Parking is available from 99 Ave and 154 Street.

Two Unique Community Gardens

Lionel Courchene Garden has two community uses:

  • A programmed Growing Roots Community Garden managed by DIVERSEcity that supports the integration of newcomers to Canada; and
  • General garden plots available for neighbours, schools and other community partners facilitated by community garden members.

All garden plots are farmed by individual residents, so please be respectful of their efforts.
