Vickers Park

Vickers Park Entrance

Vickers Park, the first park established in the former city of Fort William, was donated by Catherine Mary Vickers, daughter of pioneer author Susanna Moodie.

This beautiful park is a Thunder Bay showpiece, and includes the ever-popular children's play equipment. The City's Recreation Division provides summer programming in Vickers Park, including the annual Teddy Bears Picnic. A restoration plan to revive the original Victorian landscaping in the park is currently under way.

Vickers Park is a popular site for wedding ceremonies and photos.
