May 25th: Macaulay Point Park
We will lead a walk through Macaulay Point Park on the Esquimalt waterfront. It should take about an hour or so as we plan on stopping at the Interpretive Boards which outline the history of the park dating back to 1878. We’ll get to check out the gun placements and other interesting constructions put in place to protect Victoria harbour during various conflicts. The views are impressive and the weather is forecast as mainly sunny.
We will leave from the boat launch parking lot at the foot of Lampson Street at 9.30 am.
Coffee will be at McDonald’s just around the corner at 1151 Esquimalt Road by the Archie Browning Sports Centre. There is ample and easy parking in the adjacent Esquimalt Plaza.
