Queen Elizabeth Park is a municipal park located in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Little Mountain. Its surface was scarred at the turn of the twentieth century when it was quarried for its rock, which served to build Vancouver’s first roadways.
Queen Elizabeth Park is the last area of natural dunes on Kapiti’s coastline. Once part of a swathe of duneland stretching from Paekakariki to Foxton, the park reminds us how the coastline appeared before large-scale human settlement. Greater Wellington is working with the community to protect and enhance this environment while providing a great place to enjoy the outdoors.
With its 650 hectares of easy terrain edged by a sandy beach, Queen Elizabeth Park has plenty of space to enjoy swimming, fishing, walking, cycling, horseriding, picnics or group activities.
