     You are standing on the breakwater looking back at Dallas Road. The sidewalk on the south side of the road is also the walkway along the top of the seawall above the beach. Beacon Hill Park is at the right. It is not apparent from the above picture, but the banks to the right, which are part of the park, are covered with wildflowers.

    The park itself extends inland towards the city and it is an oasis of lily ponds, lawns, trees and flowers - including weeping willows and rose gardens. Ducks, geese, gulls, herons and other wildlife can be found everywhere.
    Beacon Hill Park also has the distinction of being the location of "Mile Zero" of the Trans-Canada Highway. It's ironic that the highway starts on an island and you have to take the ferry to use the REST of the road!
