Great Downtown Park

I walk through this park on a regular basis with my dog, as I love the paths along the river, and the large space to be able to let my dog run. Harris Park also hosts some great... read more

Harris park is one of may parks in the downtown London area. It is a park and that's about it. There is no washroom or eating facilities within the park. Parking is not available within the park. The park is subject to flooding during the early spring rains. The balloon festive that is shown in the picture has not occurred... More

This lovely open park travels along the Thames River from the Forks of the Thames north towards Oxford Street. There is an excellent paved path for walking, biking, pushing a stroller, walking the dog with a level view of the beautiful river. There are trees and benches, and also large open grassy spaces for playing frisbee, catch or running around... More

I walk through this park on a regular basis with my dog, as I love the paths along the river, and the large space to be able to let my dog run. Harris Park also hosts some great events in the summertime - such as Rock the Park - which is able to fit thousands of people. Definitely would love... More

I have not been to the park other than for Rock the Park, which was rained out on that Saturday, but the way they have it arranged is stupid. All the seats are in the centre, and then the standing room is along the sides which makes it difficult to see stage. Also, more than half with chairs are not... More

Other than the odd music festival, which is always great entertainment, this park is a bit of a sorry site, tucked along side the Thames River in the heart of downtown London. The potential for Harris Park is fantastic, but the City for some reason has never turned it into the place it could be. All the festivals from Victoria... More

Nice little park with lots of ducks. Warning during late April/May that the park floods and can be impassable. No parking or facilities at this park, and parking can be very hard to get during Rock the Park events. Lots of parking (public - City limit 2 hours, or private fee based) within about a mile of the park. Bike/Walking... More

Just a block from Eldon House this park is loved by Londoners. However not for its everyday use but many special events have been held here over the years. For Canada Day fireworks display it offers a park setting with food vendors and a family atmosphere with memorable squeels of delight from children as they OOO and AAA as fireworks... More

I love going here for Canada day fireworks when I am not out of the city for the long weekend. My son loved the show and had a blast checking out all the vendors. I like going here in winter for tobogganing. And on nice summer days its a great spot for pick kicks. Its also not far from some... More
