A nice place in the city to relax. Beautiful flower gardens and nice walk ways.
A cute train and merry go round.

“perfect in the summer or the winter!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

riverside park is the most fun place to enjoy a family picnic. there are little bbq's and pavilliions there to take a break from the sun in the summer. there is a little train you can pay to ride for kids, carousel... and also the lights in the park in the winter is STUNNING!! :)

“Well worth visiting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

I discovered this lovely park during Guelph's annual Ribfest. I was really surprised but the size and scope of it. There's a huge open field which was used for the Ribfest and I suspect many other community events throughout the year. Lots of vendors, live music, carnival games, and a classic car show to boot. The Speed River runs through the centre of the park and adds a lot to the already pretty scenery. To my surprise there are even a few permanent entertainment fixtures including a floral clock, carousel, and even a miniature train and tracks for kids (and kids at heart) to ride on. Guelph is really lucky to have such an enjoyable and well designed bit of green space.
