Wilmot Park

Directly across the street from Government House is Wilmot Park. Beautifully landscaped, the park boasts immaculate lawns, walking trails, lighted tennis courts, a basketball court, lawn bowling, a bandstand, a children’s playground, a huge wading pool, and is a perfect spot for a picnic.

The title deed of this 4.9-ha (12-acre) park was originally given to City Council in 1895, by an early Loyalist settler, Edward Wilmot, as a gift for "the commonality of Fredericton."
