Vickers Park

Corner of Selkirk Street and Arthur Street

The property for Fort William's first park was donated to the city in 1902 by Catherine Mary Vickers, daughter of well-known Canadian author Suzanna Moodie. Catherine and her husband John Joseph Vickers were some of the first settlers to arrive in the area in the late nineteenth century and soon became prominent citizens. This beautiful park is one of Thunder Bay's showpieces and contains picnic tables, benches, playground equipment, lush grass, mature trees and beautiful flower beds. The City's Recreation Division provides summer programming in Vickers Park, including the annual Teddy Bears Picnic. Vickers Park has also become a popular site to hold a wedding ceremony.
