Fast food, fried food, shame because could have some nice sit down restaurants along the walk. Plenty of sports stores, nothing much. Several hair salons. A grocery store. Go, get essentials and basics.

All the shopping you want to do is under one roof and this is Canal Walk. Parking is great with multiple parking entrances. Once you know what you want to do, you park near that Mall entrance. can get a bit busy in the weekends and over the holidays but hey, which place does not.

This is a very large mall with an abundance of shops. They seem to group shops together - ie sport section, Homeware etc. Very easy to find your away around.

I would like to inform you both of an awful experience that I had at Canal Walk yesterday. I know that Canal Walk has got bad press lately, so I am always very cautious and I only go to Canal Walk if I absolutely have to. I was sure to park my car in a 'safe' spot right next to... More
