Totem Poles Park at Stanley Park



Situated just off the seawall beside the Brockton Oval cricket pitch are eight totem poles. Each has a story that breathes life into it. Each is connected to the land on which it stands in more than just a physical sense.

In 2001 an interpretive centre was established by constructing a separate structure housing working areas, lots of signage, a gift shop for related items and a refreshment outlet. The totem poles themselves were treated to un upgrade in the landscaping around them. More signage was put in place to deal with the stories related to each of them individually.

I'd love to see those totem poles and read their stories! American Indian art, myths and legends are so fascinating!

These are authentic totem poles? Or an artists interpretation?

I am making a trip to Seattle next summer and would make a trip a little further north to see authentic totem poles
