Centennial Park

Laurel Point walkway from Centennial Park

Centennial Park is nestled between Laurel Point Park and Belleville Street Green, such that these green spaces are often considered one, in downtown Victoria, B.C. Located next to the Admiral Inn on Pendray Street and the paved fire lane access to the Inn on Laurel Point, Centennial Park is a small landscaped waterfront park with a pathway that splits to connect with the two paths of Laurel Point Park. The lower pathway is near the shoreline, although there is no access to the mud flats of James Bay or the water; the upper pathway is a few meters inland. The walkways are separated by garden beds and trees. The Stores Building, constructed in nineteen twelve, on the Raymond Wharf lies near the shoreline of the park. There are many parks and green spaces near by like Laurel Point Park Quadra Park, Belleville Street Green, Fisherman’s Wharf Park, David Foster Way, Parliament Buildings Gardens, Thunderbird Park, Irving Park, Confederation Garden Plaza, South Park, Empress Hotel Gardens, Cridge Park and Beacon Hill Park to name a few.
