We have been at the Canadian Dragon Boat Championships in Welland for the past 2 years. It’s a really good facility but it doesn’t compare to Szeged Hungary.

Actually great for all kinds of activities. Walking on the paved trail around the water, swimming or kayaking/canoeing. Also see the occasional SUP Yoga class. Very nice when no events are on, but great for watching sports as well.

World class centre and facilities along with beautiful scenery and trails. Stadium seating at finish line, lots of parking and docks for getting in and out of boats. Centre itself doesn't have a lot of signage and can be difficult to find.
