  • I lived in Windsor for 2 years and never got to Amherstburg. Now I know what I was missing. This park, The Navy Yard National Historic Site is gorgeous. It is on the Detroit River across from Boblo...

  • I was just here with a friend of mine and he didn’t want to go for a walk because he’s “busy” today. It’s a perfect 21C today so we didn’t a short walk through the park and even he had to admit it...

  • 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!
  • It's beautiful here in the spring. So many nice flowers an greenery. It's especially nice to come down here for dinner at any one of great restaurants and have ice cream from the waterfront and go for a walk.
