The Gazebo – Frost Park, Yarmouth

Daily Image - 17 September 2011 - The Gazebo - Frost Park

Frost Park is on the site of one of the original public burying grounds in Yarmouth. The last burial took place in 1864. The Town chose to develop the property as a park, named in honour of Queen Victoria, to mark her Silver Jubilee in 1887. The park was re-named in 1959, in honour of native son, Capt. Charles Sydney Frost, MC, winner of the Military Cross in WW1 and a distinguished financier, rising from the position of clerk at the Yarmouth branch, to become President of the Bank of Nova Scotia.

The gazebo/bandshell was erected in the late 1990’s.
