  • Probably the most underused park in Thunder Bay, Nice walking area and beach. Would be much nicer if the city really cared. No bus transportation.  more »

  • An amazing park and a great experience. Not very many people go here so it's kind of like one of those hidden gems to go to if you just want to relax or have a fun family outing. The only reason I didn't give the park 5 stars is because it's not very well maintained but thats the city's fault. In conclusion I would 100% recommend you go here as it was quite an amazing experience!
  • Only reason for 2 star is the scenery. Otherwise only come here with lots of people. And keep a close eye on your car and children.
