This little park is like an oasis in the area. The flowers and shrubs and paths are inviting and lovely. We were glad we found it.

We went for an early morning walk through the gardens that were close to our hotel. It was so beautiful!! A large variety of flowers and trees and shrubs lit by the early morning sun. Definitely go here while in Prince Rupert :)
