Waverley Park

Waverley Park Fountain

Waverley Park is the second oldest park in Ontario! It features the Cenotaph and the recently restored Hogarth Fountain. The fountain dates back to 1790 and originated in Hertfordshire, England. It was donated in 1965 in memory of Major-General Donald McDonald Hogarth, by his wife. Hogarth had been a long-time MPP for the Port Arthur riding.

Park improvements including tree planting and the construction of a series of connected walkways are underway as part of a plan to restore Waverley Park to its proper place as one of the cornerstones of the Thunder Bay Parks system.
