What a beautiful way to enjoy this part of the city. Nestled along the Grand River is a pretty path through greenspace and gardens. Scattered throughout the gardens are intriguing sculptures. My favourite of today's walk was the Audio Bee Cabinet. Working with the natural...More

You can see it all in about 3 minutes, however it is a pretty setting with benches and picnic tables next to the Grand River. Across the street you find the Southworks Outlet Mall. The park is kept nice and you will enjoy the sights.

Indeed, I expected more in this garden, more of a botanical garden than sculptures, but with extensive work going on at one end, perhaps there is an expansion or at least an upgrade to the site. It's right across from the Dunfield Theatre, with a...More

Nice quiet spot to stop and have a picnic. Sculptures are neat and different things are always being added. Also along a trail so a good spot to walk or bike. Also nice views of the river.

Nice walk along the Grand River, but lacking in sculptures. Expected a little more. Very poor signage ,almost missed it.

This small park walk meanders from the school of architecture along to River to Concession Street. Grab a coffee and goal for a stroll, check out the art pieces and take in the view.

I used to walk the dog through here everyday! Friendly people beautiful art work! It's really great when the School of Architecture gets involved! Quite the site to see! Well worth seeing a part of Cambridge that you don't see everyday!

Im not sure if we were lost, but it seemed that the garden didn't have that many sculptures. We walked down the river, but there was not a whole lot to see. Although it is still a beautiful walk, and it's free! I imagine it...More
