Description & Services
Description (Service) Mariners Park Museum explores the many ways the inhabitants of Prince Edward County have interacted with its surrounding waters, from fishing and ship building to ice harvesting and rum running, and recreational pursuits such as boat racing too. 
 
The lighthouse relocated from False Duck Island beckons visitors to the site at South Bay, where they can also explore Fort Kente (a recreated fort from the 1812 War-era) and enjoy a picnic in the park. 
 
Many shipwrecks have been located in the waters surrounding Prince Edward County and the Mariners Park Museum has become the home of multiple “treasures” retrieved during early diving expeditions.
