Even with a light rain it was enjoyable. The green trees and landscaping brought out a warmth to the trip. Throughout the city, there was much nature for you to see. Kids playing in the park instead of texting on phone was refreshing.

Overnight parking is not permitted in the Park. There is a general provision in the Victoria By-Laws that also limits parking in parks to 3.5 hours during the day. I doubt if this is enforced in Beacon Hill though.

Does Mayor's Grove still exist in the park? I wrote about it in 1969, don't have the exact location. I recently moved here, just 10 minutes away so I guess I could search!

Well the trees are a little larger since 1969. Not sure if naming post is there. At the North end of the Park (Southgate) by the Ball & Soccer field's.
