Norma Kenney House The Norma Kenney House was built in honour of the Mission Heritage Association's founding president, Norma Kenney, as a reminder of her instrumental work in establishing the park.

The Flag Plaza The Flag Plaza was donated to the Park by the Mission Rotary Club to provide a formal centrepiece for ceremonies and concerts. As a fundraising activity and to allow people to associate themselves with our beautiful Park, the Mission Heritage Association began installing plaques with names in the Flag Plaza. For $75, a person could purchase one line of 18 characters on which they could designate whomever they wished.

The Bell Tower The bell tower was added to the park landscape in June 2000. The bell, which is the original cast iron bell from St. Mary's Mission and Residential School, was donated to the park by the Sto:lo Nation.
