  Mural & Waterwheel
by balhannah

Waterwheel Park is located in the main part of Chemainus.

If your a tourist, you will find it nestled in giant fir trees, near the Tourist Information centre.
Quite a few of the trees are indigenous to Vancouver Island.

There is a lovely Mural, and a Waterwheel which is a replica of the original that powered the early mills. This wheel and the first phase of the park were constructed as part of the 1967 Canadian Centennial celebrations.

The children’s playground has a tall ship for playing on, and a big canoe. This park would be great for families.

In days gone by.... Waterwheel Park was part of the grounds of the mill manager's house. This house was demolished in 1952.

Address: Waterwheel Drive, Chemainus
