Great Waterfront!

We loved the waterfront area with its restaurants and views especially of the Royal Military College. The Sunday street market was fun and interesting.

On land you can stroll the waterfront for differing lengths depending where you park. Plus there is often something going on at the city park. Fireworks, Thursday night outdoor free... More

One of the treasures of Kingston is our waterfront. Y can stroll or jog as you like. Now that the K+p trail connects to Fluhrer park you can go for miles. Take the time to visit, you I'll have a great time.
