Frost Park

Beautifully manicured lawns and gardens make Frost Park a great place to spend part of a leisurely summer afternoon.  Bring along a picnic lunch, or just sit and enjoy your surroundings. Originally known as 'Victoria Park,'  it was built on the site of a very old cemetery.  Stones which have been found over the years can be seen here and there on the lawns standing where they were discovered.

An interesting bit of History

 


Yarmouth at Night

A pleasant change for those from big cities - at night Yarmouth is a quiet place with streets safe enough for night-time strolls.  Pause in Frost Park and enjoy the soothing sounds of the sea, the night breeze in the trees, and the fountain's flow.
