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.

  • Lovely view of river and islands. The gardening is beautiful and well kept and is smoke free. Great place to sit back and relax on a nice day.

  • Great place. Amazing views. Nice paths. Lots of historic areas to learn bout. Perfect for families
  • Fantastic park with an ice cream shop across the street. I grew up going there all the time and now I got to experience it with my son. Possibly the place I will get married as it is SUCH a lovely location 🥰
