Beaconsfield Historic House marks the start of the Victoria Park Boardwalk. This .75 mile promenade along the waterfront is delightful. Your stroll also traces the outer edge of Victoria Park. The former Government House Farm was converted into this 40 acre park in 1873. Encircling the forested sections are an outdoor pool, baseball fields, tennis courts, skateboard area and a playground. The name of the boardwalk and park honors Queen Victoria. Her 63 year reign of the United Kingdom was from 1837 until 1901.
