Nestled in the serenity behind the Whistler Public Library, Florence Petersen Park is an ideal location for family, social and community events.
This park is part of the Cultural Connector, a route that connects six significant cultural destinations in the Village. It was named after Florence Petersen, Whistler's longest-tenured resident who founded the Whistler Museum and Archives. She was awarded both Citizen of the Year and the Freedom of the Municipality.
This park is located in Whistler Village behind (north of) the Whistler Public Library and Whistler Museum and Archives between Main Street and Northlands Boulevard.
