This beautiful waterfront park opened in 1967 to celebrate Canada’s Centennial. In the past the area along the St. Clair River was home to Sarnia’s early industry including sawmills, lumberyards, railroad, and shipping.
Today, the park features award winning floral gardens, a children’s play area, Court of Flags, walking trails, recreation and entertainment area all maintained by the city’s parks and recreation department. The waterfront park is a popular venue for numerous sporting events, concerts and festivals. Every winter the park is illuminated with thousands of colourful lights for the Celebration of Lights Christmas event.
The park has undergone a major remediation project, which is now complete.
