If you think Confederation Park is a place for summertime frolicking only, think again. Each year during the holidays Confederation park transforms to "The Festival of Lights." Thousands of lights create fantasy scenes depicting traditional Christmas themes accompanied by background music. The display can easily...More

Confederation Park is a great escape from the city. It offers an excellent bike path so can exercise and enjoy the nature. Going there with a book and read under the shade of a tree is refreshing.

It is a great place for 1-2 hours walk or half an hour run. It is next to Confederation golf course. The bridge underpass on the golf course side has cool murals (graffiti). I like their new deck at the duck pond on the south...More

Beautiful, inner city park enjoyed by locals and tourists since 1967. Paved pathway system throughout the 400 acre park is great for biking, running or walking your pooch. Picnics and tennis in the summer, tobogganing and cross country skiing in winter. A definite must see...More

Confederation Park is beautiful anytime of the year and offers rolling hills for the serious walker to tackle. It is at its best when blanketed with winter snow and all a-sparkle with the thousands of Christmas lights that local service clubs sponsor every year.

We love going here for picnics and annual fall photos. It is gorgeous. Lots of room for kids to run around and burn some energy.

This park is both beautiful in the summer or winter but especially the summer. You can take long leisurely walks or go for a good jog. The scenery is wonderful and you could spend a whole day here. Great for families and couples alike.
