In downtown Victoria, very close to the inner harbor and the Empress Hotel, and right next to the Royal BC Museum, this park boasts beautiful totem poles from the Haida, Gitxsan and Kwakwaka'wakw First Nations, and Mungo Martin House (a traditional First Nations Big House). Each pole tells a story / represents something meaningful. During summer months you might get to see First Nation artists carve and paint totem poles. If you are in the area and have any interest at all in cultural sites, especially aboriginal / Coast Salish First Nations culture, make sure to stop here! You can learn more by visiting the museum next door (where there are more totem poles).
