My parents always loved this park when they were growing up there and when they had kids they took us there when we came to visit relatives. It's a great place for family time with walking areas, bike paths, picnic areas and sandy beach. In the summer they have concerts at the band shell. Family time.

WE have been going to Canatara park with family and friends, our entire lives. It's a great place to go for picnics, just a walk or even community events. Just a great place to visit in Sarnia.

Lots of parking for beach front access. Clean water. Glad the city placed some concrete barriers between the lots so the attention-seeking young people don't drive their trucks over the curb anymore. Good size for when there's events and such.

It is so nice to have this beautiful park right in Point Edward/Sarnia. We grabbed a sub and took it down by the lake. It is kept up beautifully and the beach is so nice. There is plenty of room to enjoy a walk or for the kids to play at the playground. The animal farm is a bonus as... More
