Walking from the Inner Harbour toward Beacon Hill Park, we stopped at Thunderbird Park. More lovely flowers, and many great totems, up close and personal.
The park has been here since the 1940's as a site to preserve disappearing First Nation art. The park also contains the Mungo Martin House, a traditional native Big House. What treasures to stroll among.

We love walking through this little park located in the downtown area. You can enjoy the sites ( sit at park benches on Museum side) or walk along the local streets to see the sites & sounds. The totem poles are the best part of the mini park.

We walked by Thunderbird Park several times during our visit to Victoria over Canada Day weekend as we walked to and from our hotel, the Helms Inn. The park is located next to the Royal BC Museum across the street from the Empress Hotel garden area. There are ten or twelve totem poles in the park. The totems are very interesting and provide a glimpse of a part of the history of the BC peninsula.

This park may be little but it is a big part of British COlumbia history. it is next to the Royal British Columbia Museum and across the street from the Empress hotel garden area. The totem poles are impressive with very detailed carvings. the park grounds are clean and have picinic tables. The main building has totem paintings on it. This is well worth checking out and admiring the the hard work that went into making htese totem poles. it will not take you very long to see the whole park but it is definetly worht a stop

Nice area for a walk, just of off the BC Museum & Government Street. Enjoy a light lunch at the picnic table or take in the historic totem poles, lots of sweat & tears went into this area. I say this is part of BC History!
