The landscape-architect Donald W. Graham worked on this project.
Historically, dogs have not been allowed in the park, nor in neighbouring Dick Bell park. In 2009, the city allowed dogs on a leash as a one-year pilot project. This was to try and solve the "geese problem", which was caused by too many Canada geese in the summer that excrete all over the grass and paths. This rule has since been extended indefinitely. Currently, dogs are allowed on a leash, but "are prohibited from being within five metres of all children's play areas and pools".
