Public input sought for Pioneer Square improvements

Once known as the old burying ground, Pioneer Square is earmarked for improvements.

The City of Victoria is developing a management plan for the park and seeks input from the community.

Meet city planners to ask questions and make suggestions. Information panels and surveys also available online or at the parks office in Beacon Hill Park between June 22 and July 8. Book an appointment by calling 250-361-0600.

Feedback will guide draft recommendations to be presented at an open house in the fall.

Pioneer Square, beside Christ Church Cathedral, served as a cemetery between 1855 and 1873.
