A new ballpark would be built for Vancouver dubbed "Athletic Park" and they would play at their new home for nearly 40 years. Bob Brown would not only clear the property himself, but organized the construction of the stadium (utilizing some of Recreation Park's wood and grandstand which was simultaneously demolished). Bob Brown would not only own the franchise for the rest of its existence at Recreation Park after 1910, but also for all of its history at the new Athletic Park and into the new Capilano II (Nat Bailey) Stadium in 1950, remaining with the team until 1953. Brown would be known as "Mr. Baseball" and the "Father of Baseball" in Vancouver. Recreation Park would serve as Vancouver's first professional baseball stadium starting in 1905 and do so for a period of 7 years in what would be a relatively short life span. Recreation Park was completely dismantled by mid-1913.
