I am a frequent traveller on the Inland Island Highway and I must declare that the Infocentre's strategic location (especially with respect to Tim Hortons Restaurants), together with its wonderfully appointed and always clean and tidy washrooms make it a must see. The staff is always courteous and friendly too.

Really nice design of building with lots of parking, and seating for visitors needing to picnic. It's kind of annoying to get to if your coming from the inland island highway.... Looks like the city probably spent a lot of money on this site.
