Really beautiful park located in midtown Kitchener. Somewhat or an 'urban oasis'. Nature lake/river with canoe rentals. Big splash pad for kids which is very busy but in the corner of the park so not to change the serenity of strolls around the parks perimeter....More

We were witness to an attempted murder... while walking through the park we noticed something was off.. an innocent squirrel was minding it's business when a hawk swooped down from a tree and just missed grabbing the poor sucker.

Huge park, very green with all the recent rain, well maintained with a nice fountain and monument. Very close to city hall so probably very busy with the lunchtime crowd and on hot summer days.

This could be a great park if they just got rid of the ducks and geese. There is droppings everywhere and it really stinks after a rain.

There are several parking lots around the park. I don't think there is a set time, however; to be sure, call City of Kitchener, Parks and Recreation @ 519-741-2345
