While we did not actually went swimming, there were many others who were thoroughly enjoying the great facilities. Large enough to accommodate lots of people on a hot summer day.

We visited this park looking for a nice little climber for the children. It was lovely here! A wonderful beach with easy access into the river (even for wheelchairs!), a fun splash pad, & yes a little climber.

Love walking along the waterfront trail and through this park in the fresh, sunny winter sunshine! The deck chairs are still at the beach! (must be waiting for a polar bear dip!) and you can see the lighthouse so beautiful against the snow!

This park has a delightful area for children and families to enjoy the beach along with amazing views of the Thousand Islands adjacent to Gananoque and access to Marina and kayaking facilities. We also enjoyed some of the live music presented at the park.

Yes, it is dog friendly. Part of why I love it so much is there are lots of memories of walks with my dog Doogie.
