Description EN

Queen Elizabeth Park on Hill Street in Picton is a lovely park to sit and watch activity going in and out of Picton Harbour.   In the summer it's a great picnic spot for lunch as well.  There is a memorial here with a small fountain of interest commerating five tall ships that entered Picton Harbour in 1984.  There is also some information on the Founding of Hallowell.

Due to lack of hiding spots around the fountain the geocache is not located right at the fountain but fairly close by.  Rely on your GPS. It's NOT off the steep bank

Not available in the winter - Dec 1st - Mar 31st.
