Victoria Park and George Street Improvements
Improvements to Victoria Park and the George Street streetscape are the first project to be implemented as part of the Downtown Streetscape Design Plan.
Plans to improve the park and surrounding street were developed with a goal of creating a more accessible and pedestrian-friendly environment within the context of the Victoria Square Heritage Conservation District.
The park includes several significant features including the Joseph Brant Memorial located in the centre of the park (1886), the elaborate drinking fountain located on the west edge of the square (1892) and the unique layout of the park’s pathways in configuration of the Union Jack as originally designed in 1861 by the British-born architect John Turner.
