Parks & Gardens
Walker Park - Vine Street in Birtle
Walker Park is a heritage park amongst some of the community's oldest character homes. The park was developed at the site of the historic stone stairway that leads down to the river's edge where a fresh water spring bubbles from the ground. This spring was once the reason pioneers chose this location to stop for an overnight stay or for a lifetime. Here you will see some of the community's oldest trees including beautiful elm and spruce. Gardens are planted with heritage perennials and fruiting shrubs- so valued by early settlers. The boulders on site are but a few of the ones dug up when the beds were created. The public are welcome to pick the fruit in this garden. Picnic tables invite you to stop and rest a while.
