I love the festivals! Excellent location to enjoy music and food during the summer months and lovely Christmas lights and ice skating in the winter! My favourite festivals are Sunfest and Home County in July....always lots of fun!

Big concrete splash pad for everyone to enjoy or just cool down as well as a large playground for younger kids. Hot dog vendors on site and nice walkways along the river.

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
