Lots of walking/cycling paths among nicely maintained green spaces, great place for a picnic, yoga, street musicians and visual artists. Abundance of colors from variety of plants and hanging baskets. Relaxing and friendly - right in the centre of the city!

We love Prince's Island. It's starting to get back to normal after the flood and we're happy for that because we missed going there. It's such a beautiful park to take a leisurely stroll, sit on a bench, or take the kids to the play park. We park at Eau Claire for a few bucks and enjoy the short walk.... More

Had a nice evening walk with the kids in the park. It has good play structures, and is well maintained. We liked watching the duck and geese in the river. It was a nice relaxing way to end our evening.

The island is an easy walk from downtown. It is maintained well and appears to be safe. Lots of birds and great people watching. There is a cafe on the island but I didn't visit it.

Nice spot for an early morning stroll before it gets too hot. Relaxing experience before a day's shopping.
