Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park is one of those public spaces we just keep coming back to.
Do you even live in Western District if you don’t frequent the wide-open grassy waterfront of Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park? Between the flat, stroller-friendly circular paths, fun outdoor play equipment, a FREE LCSD indoor playroom, public swimming pool and more, it’s no wonder families can easily spend a full day relaxing with a picnic at Sun Yat Sen Park.
The LCSD gives a pretty good rundown of the public facilities at Sun Yat Sen Park. On the Memorial Lawn, you’ll find families pitching picnic blankets, meeting with personal trainers for an outdoor workout or kids running around in sports classes. There’s also a 7-a-side soccer pitch, basketball courts and fitness stations.
