Great spot

Came here on a mid-September Sunday afternoon with our family. Beautiful spot to view Boldt Castle and the river. Well worth the visit.

Alex Bay has built a very nice walk along the river that ends at this beautiful scenic park. It is on a little island that goes out into the river. Beautiful little park!

Really enjoyed sitting on the rock and watching sunset, sail boats sailing by and the Boldt Castle across the river. Very romantic.

We were here during Pirate Week and this park was the best place to watch everything that was going on. The actors....uh, I mean...pirates, the pirate ships that came in to take over the island, and all the shenanigans that went on in between. Everyone there was having a great time!!!

A nice spot to sit and enjoy the view of the St. Lawrence river. Great place for a picnic as well. It also has a little swimming area off to the side.

This is a great little place for a picnic. It can get very crowded during the weekend. You get a great view of all the ships traveling the seaway. There is also a small public beach on the mainland across the bridge.

It was just by accident we found this park. We had heard about a boardwalk over the water, but there is much more: a playground, pavilion, beach, a bridge to an island and on the other end, historical markers and a gazebo. Very pretty and a beautiful view of the river and islands including Boldt Castle. It is quite hilly-... More

The playground has recently been redone - as of this week it has a pirate ship theme and in very good shape. The beach is small, but there is a lifeguard present. I suggest grabbing lunch and having a meal at the pavilion or in the grass, there are a few picnic tables in the grassy sections with grills. Great... More
