Great place to bring the kids on a hot summer day to burn off some energy and play in the splash pool. Great outdoor activity.

The play equipment was fully renovated/updated in 2013/14? While there is no beach there is lots of park and trees. Huge splash pad and playground. Bathrooms/showers, beach volley ball net, boat docking. There is a huge covered area with lots of pic-nic tables, great place for a birthday party al fresco.

A very well maintained park. Sunsets are the best here. Especially during the fall season, when the leaves turn orange and red and the sunlight falls against them. Its just beautiful! Make sure you sit close to the lake. The sound of the waves splashing against the rocks are soothing!

Quiet walking paths in the heart of Kingston, Ontario offers mostly paved walking paths with a few nice hills to challenge the legs and gluts! It is also a very safe area so walking alone is not a problem. Great views of Lake Ontario and if you happen to be there at sunset, it's spectacular!

Haven't been here in over 30 years but, boy, was I overjoyed by the transformation. This west-facing park situated on a slope overlooking Lake Ontario has something for everyone - water activities (swimming and boating), sandboxes for the kids, trees, grass, walkways, and facilities for everyone. I was especially impressed by the view, sitting on well-placed benches at the top... More
