It has an incredible display of flowering rhododendrons and azaleas that bloom in the springtime, usually in May, with the 300-foot perennial park border giving the entire area a pop of colour. According to local websites, some of these well-established and thriving plants are over 50 years old. There is open green space for picnics, seasonally open washrooms available from the first of May through the end of October, and there is plenty of parking on Rock Street.
Playfair Park also features a Garry Oak meadow with camas, shooting stars, and other native plants. This is a restoration project site stewarded by local volunteers. Dogs must be leashed in this section of the park and within 10 metres of the playground area. Other popular parks include Topaz Park, Ruthledge Park, Summit Park, and Oswald Park.
