On steamy summer days Guelphites walk, bike, or drive to the little old boat house located right on the Speed River, across the street from the park. An interesting collection of ice cream flavours and a casual, comfortable outdoor environment, including a covered patio, make it a popular place for local people. Kiddie cones available to everyone and there's no extra charge for sugar cones. For larger orders, waffle cones are available at no extra cost,
Those ice cream calories can be burned off in a canoe or kayak, which are available for rental on the premises and can be launched from the pier. Since the boat house sits at the river fork, there are lots of options for boaters.
For those who prefer to sit indoors and have a light lunch, the little cafe offers sandwiches, soups, and scones in a clean, antique-like environment. The portions are a bit small for the price, but it's hard to beat the friendly, lazy-summer-days atmosphere.
