“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 26, 2012

I stumbled upon this little park while exploring downtown Gananoque. Its located along both banks of the river running through the town and features many excellent sculptures by local artists. There are also fountains and walking trails, very nice.

“A lovely park to wander in”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2012

We strolled through this park after having a great dinner at the Maple Leaf restaurant, and were in need of exercise. As this is still only mid-June and not into tourist season, the finer touches of preparing the park for summer are still to be done. The ponds and main pool of water were scum covered and unpleasant to look at, especially the too shallow pool where the metal sculpture of the leaf is "floating". But, the lawns were trimmed and tidy, the walking path was clear and in good condition and we met others using the space on that mild, warm evening. Well worth the time to wander here and visit each sculpture as presented.

“What's better than a plain ol' park?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2012

A Sculpture Park! For those taking a casual stroll through the main downtown strip in Gananoque, you'll find this subtle and picturesque park nestled close to a bridge on the west-end. While easy to miss, if you do wander in, it's a great strolling park hugging a gentle waterway. Birds and sculptures... find them all - you'll have a ball.
