Iroquois Park, Sidney-by-the-Sea

Visit Iroquois Park to enjoy the beautiful garden displays, playground and water spray area, basketball/hockey court, public toilets, tennis courts and ball fields. Or to just hang out on the grassy knolls to watch the airplanes and clouds. It does really have all this and is close to several other amenities.  There is parking for boat trailers that launch near Tulista Park.  For those history buffs, the park was named after the SS Iroquois which sank offshore in 1911, the propeller from the vessel is displayed on a memorial flower bed.

You can get to Iroquois Park from Pat Bay Highway then Lochside Drive or Fifth Street. The park is on the corner of Fifth Street and Ocean Avenue. It is across from Tulista Park and the US ferry terminal.  Iroquois Park is accessible from a pathway that connects to Northlawn Terrace and Iroquois Way.  This park is on a bus route.

If you want to stretch your legs a little more, stroll to Tulista Park around the US Ferry Terminal toward the Port of Sidney Marina.  This connects to the Waterfront Walkway that follows the shoreline past the ferry terminal toward the shops and stores. Alternative head toward the highway along Eighth Street and either continue on Lochside Trail or walk past the Skateboard Park toward the Conference Center and Bevan Park.  Another longer stroll would be to exit the park toward along the pathway that leads to Iroquois Way, walk toward Northlawn Terrace and turn right on Weiler Avenue. Cross over the Pat Bay Highway, using the pedestrian overpass, to access the trails near the Greenglade Community Center and Reay Park.
