Designated as a Bi-Centennial International Peace Garden. Along the pathway are many manicured annual flower beds, a ships anchor, cannons, and a light house beacon. It has been acknowledged as part of the great Sauk Trail which ran from Illinois to Detroit. Once a shipyard for the Provincial Marine, today you can take a stroll along the water, watch the ocean and lake freighters pass by or snap a photo of the colourful Rhododendron’s and lovely gardens.

  • Pretty walk along the waterfront, this is a great place to spend some time for a stroll or a picnic on a leisure afternoon.

  • Nice garden to walk through and good view across the river. Benches to sit to see view well placed. Especially good on a sunny day.

  • Attened open air weekend on a Sunday. Wonderful atmosphere. My kids played the games and had fun with the attendants. Enjoyed a glass of wine at one of the restaurants however they closed at 6. I thought for long weekend they may have extended hours. But overall nice evening out!
  • Nice park with some historic view and river front. Good restaurants and ice cream place around. Must visit in summer and fall. Crowded during weekend and may need to park far but its worth it.
