Confederation Landing Park

Confederation Landing Park Review

This waterfront recreation area at the bottom of Great George Street occupies the site where the Fathers of Confederation famously landed in 1864. Walkways and park benches offer plenty of opportunities to survey the activity of the harbor, with the added attraction of banks and banks of wild rose bushes behind. During summer, performers in period costume stroll about the area re-creating the events that led up to Canadian Confederation. Occasionally, the park also doubles as a venue for Canadian acts like Nickelback or Cirque du Soleil. Peake's Wharf, right next to it, has casual restaurants and bars, souvenir and crafts shops, and a marina where boat tours can be arranged. It hosts its own outdoor concert series in peak months. Featuring local talent, the free shows start at 2:30 and 6:30 daily.
