We were witness to an attempted murder... while walking through the park we noticed something was off.. an innocent squirrel was minding it's business when a hawk swooped down from a tree and just missed grabbing the poor sucker.

Huge park, very green with all the recent rain, well maintained with a nice fountain and monument. Very close to city hall so probably very busy with the lunchtime crowd and on hot summer days.

This could be a great park if they just got rid of the ducks and geese. There is droppings everywhere and it really stinks after a rain.

There are several parking lots around the park. I don't think there is a set time, however; to be sure, call City of Kitchener, Parks and Recreation @ 519-741-2345
