Bissell Park is quite small and is a great picnic spot. However, there is a short trail that leads to the side of a small waterfall. It is a great photo opportunity but visiting here would be quick as there is not much to do.

Small nice park with a short walk to the waterfall. Probably would be a nice place for picnic. There were people fishing that day also, not sure if they caught anything.

This park is located on the Grand River. There is a boardwalk along the river which is quite nice. Also a very good biking/hiking trail that starts at the pedestrian bridge over the river. This trail will take you right into Fergus. It is well...More
