Reviewed July 22, 2013

Huge volleyball games picnic area and beach area. The bathrooms were shut down while we were there...but of a hassle but the children loved the waterfront and the frog ponds.

“Good with the bad”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

Great park with the kids, lots to do and my daughter loved the animals at the Childrens Animal Farm. The only negative was the Rocky (understatement) Beach. Definitely go to another beach in the city. Couldn't enjoy the water as you couldn't get out in it, unless you turned your ankle. Unfortunate for a nice little getaway.

“Great Park for Families”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We visited this park recently and found it to be really nice. The beach was clean, the bathroom facilities were clean and the children's farm was cute. While at the beach, we got to see some boat races which was fun to watch. The part of the beach that we stopped at was manned by lifeguards, but there were spots you could go where there weren't any on duty. There was no fee to enter the park or the farm. Overall, I would definitely visit again.

“Nice Place for families”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

We have visited this park for years every time we come to this part of Ontario. The Animal Farm is free and appeals to all ages of kids and adults. I have pictures of my children here from pre-school up to teenagers. The beaches on Lake Huron are really pretty and wonderful for families. Bathroom facilities are available as well as areas for picnics. Fond memories of this lovely area.

“Animal Farm”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Lovely place to visit in Sarnia - you should take the kids to the animal farm which is free to visit (covenant prevents charges). A walk through the picturesque parkland leads to the delightful beaches of Lake Huron. Great place to spend a summer's day and equally spectacular after a winter snowfall.
