The information on the pilot of the plane that is featured there is very interesting. It is so wonderful that Barry's Bay recognizes this most interesting man.

This is in the middle of town, right across from the train station - interesting if you are an aviation buff. There is a miniature avro arrow and the park honours local resident and world-renowned test pilot Janusz Zurakowski.
