Deadman's Island Park

Deadman's Island isn't actually an island but a peninsula. This small park is the buriel ground of nearly 200 US soldiers captured during the war of 1812, from which it gets its name. Though small compared to nearby Flemming Park the park has a wooded area and view of the North West Arm.
