Long Description:
Stretching along banks of the Speed River the park creates one of Guelph’s largest recreational greenspaces. One of the most prominent features is the floral clock (it keeps time!) and the picturesque gardens that encompass it. During the summer months, children can ride a restored musical carousel, The Riverside Express (a miniature train) or paddle boats. Enjoy the recreation trails or a picnic next to the river.
