Heather Moyse Heritage Park and Garden

Heather Moyse

Surround Yourself in Nature in a Botanical Garden

Named for Summerside’s own 2-time Olympic Gold Medalist, Heather Moyse, the Heather Moyse Heritage Park Trail System is being developed as one of the major community green spaces in the City. A unique feature of the park is the exclusive use of PEI native, indigenous plantings. The trail allows for walking, cross country skiing, bird watching, photography, sitting in the sun or shade, school picnics, and more.

The park provides educational experiences, like learning to identify native trees and shrubs, understanding the use of native trees and shrub material for gardening and landscaping, and a general appreciation of the native tree cover of Prince Edward Island environment.

The park layout is suited to self-guided tours or guided tours for residents, tourists and school groups.

A variety of trees and shrubs native to Prince Edward Island are found in the park, including:

  • Red Oak
  • Red Spruce
  • Yellow Birch
  • White and Red Pine
  • Beech & Eastern Hemlock
  • Honeysuckle
  • Hazelnut
  • Serviceberry
  • Hawthorn
  • Roses

With its open grass lawn areas that are punctuated with groves of heritage trees and shrub gardens, its wetland garden with a boardwalk, and a flower garden by the main entrance, the Heather Moyse Heritage Park is the perfect location to spend time in nature.

Amenities include picnic areas, benches, washrooms, trails, and parking.

The main entrance to the park is located at the intersection of Eustane and Ottawa Streets. You can also access the park along two footpaths on Arcona Street (across from Rogers Ave).

The park is open 6:00 am – 10:00 pm.
