This is a nice park, by centennial beach along kempenfelt bay. It's a good spot to take children. Always busy, but fun. Nearby is the beach. And several ice cream points as well.

My son's favorite place to play and my favorite place to stroll. It has beautiful view, very clean and updated. We are lucky to have such a luxury on a lakefront.

I lived in Barrie for several years and really enjoyed the entire waterfront area. A great reason to visit Barrie or even more there! Nice sandy beach, fun playground for kids, beautiful boardwalk, great views.

I had the time of my life Paddle Boarding! The only way I could sum up the feelings of my experience would be to draw upon a poem by Alan Cohen... " It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new. But there is no real security in what is no longer... More
