Gwynne Vaughan Park is located in the City of Chilliwack, and consists of 6.8 acres of gardens, lawns, a field and a heritage orchard, all surrounding a heritage house built in 1896. The park also provides 30 community garden plots which are allocated on an annual basis.
Home to a large variety of specimen trees, shrubs and roses and a large formal perennial border, Gwynne Vaughan Park is a popular site for wedding ceremonies, club picnics and family gatherings.
The Park is managed by the Gwynne Vaughan Park Society and is owned by the City of Chilliwack.
