Memorial Park

Memorial Park is located opposite the Memorial Library at 1950 Marine Drive.

This small park is a peaceful sanctuary next to the business district. Take a short walk along the east bank of MacDonald Creek through a plantation of rare and colourful rhododendrons and azaleas and watch Coho salmon and Cutthroat trout in the Centennial Salmon Rearing Pond.
