Really cool looking art piece down by the water front. Sadly, you can’t walk on the upper waves, but still a great spot to see the harbor!

We found photos on Social Media and since the three wave decks were within walking distance from where we were, we visited them. We went to the Simcoe and Rees wave decks so my teens could take fun pics. Simcoe was the highest and most...More

This is city sponsored artwork. Waste of my tax dollars. Please come and visit and spend some money somewhere.

Of the few wavedecks along harbourfront, this is most distinct as it has the largest "wave". Its a nice piece of work...no wonder it is listed as a site to be photographed. There was no skateboarder there when I visited though.

Well this is a fun art installation that you can walk on, that being said you need to watch where you are walking or you could easily trip. Folks on roller blades were having the most fun on this! The idea is a deck area...More

Bizarre modern art. Kids and skate boarders seem to enjoy it. Don't try to walk on it, unless you like challenges.
