There were 3 horseshoe pits near the Brockton Oval in Stanley Park. Horseshoes is a game that isn't played too much anymore, but is more known for the saying 'Close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades'!
2019 Update: The horseshoe pits have been removed so there are no more horseshoe pits in Stanley Park.
The BC Horseshoe Association believes that there was a Stanley Park Horseshoe club in Stanley Park until 1969 when it moved to Central Park in Burnaby. Below are some old photos from the 1960s!
