Freeman Ken Hill Park

 

Freeman Ken Hill Park is in the seaside community of Esquimalt, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia.   Mr. Hill was an Esquimalt alderman, mayor, volunteer and resident that supported the community. His projects included formation of the West Song Walkway and the Esquimalt Library. He was made a Freeman of Esquimalt for his compassion, energy and commitments to his community and area. The parkland is about one third of a hectare with large granite outcrop. The park looks west northwest over Esquimalt Harbor. The park is mostly landscaped with a concrete walkway that leads to benches, table and a gazebo. The landscaped areas contain many native plants that border the grass covered areas. There are several tall Garry oak trees that provide shade for the park.
