Long Description:
With backstop, dugouts, fences down the baselines, and a small amount of bleacher seating, this is a very typical small town baseball/softball field for the area. Through the summer it sees Little League, men's and women's fastball and slo-pitch league and pickup softball games. Though there are no washroom nor change facilities at the diamond, there are large washrooms a short sprint away in the park.

Located on the shores of Kootenay Lake, Vimy Park boasts a children´s playground, a covered picnic area, a baseball field, a charming gazebo and a public campground. The park is the site, each year, of the annual May Days Celebration and the Maypole Dance, a tradition that has been kept alive in Kaslo, without missing a single year, since 1892. The park was dedicated in 1924 by Lord and Lady Byng. Lord Byng was the Governor General of Canada at the time. The beautiful gazebo in the centre of the park was built to celebrate Kaslo´s Centennial in 1993.
