Bullen Park is in the seaside community of Esquimalt, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. Bullen Park is nestled between the parking area for the Archie Browning Sports Center and the Esquimalt Recreation Center. This park hosts a large grass covered sports field. There are three baseball diamonds with backstop fences made of chain-link fencing. There are dugouts and bleachers at each field. Out of baseball season the field is used by soccer, rugby, ultimate and football teams. Bullen Park is the spot for presenting community and cultural events hosted by the community. Several sport teams like the Gorge Soccer Club, Victoria Ultimate Players Society, Ebb Tide Rugby Club and Victoria Women’s Fastball League play here. A lacrosse box is found in the southwestern corner of this park. London plane trees and landscaped areas adorn this parkland. The Esquimalt shopping plaza with a wonderful grocery store and other shops is near the field. Saxe Point Park, Freeman Ken Hill Park and Foster Park are nearby.
