“Beautiful park”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Riverside Park is at the bottom of the driveway to our Apartment. 2 minutes and I am in the park. It is beautifully maintained and whenever there is an event being held there the park is completely cleaned and back to normal the next day. The Riverside Express( a small train) is wonderful for the Kiddies and if you go on with them adults are free and you pay a small fee for the Kids, plus there is a Carousel which is very popular with the kids. There is an Enabling Garden and a seating area which is beautiful and restful at the far end of the park. I think it is the best park in Guelph and judging by the crowds of people at the park in the summertime so does everybody else.

“One of my favourite parks in Guelph!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

I love the spaciousness of this park and the fact that there is a huge children's park, one for smaller kids and a bigger one for older kids. In the summer time, you can take your children on the train or carrousel for a small fee; adults are free of charge if they are with a small child. A great place to have a picnic, read, stroll, run and/or just be! I also love the floral clock park area which is so serene and beautiful and has been the site for many wedding photos, too. In the summer time, there are many events going on in the park like the Multicultural Festival, Canada Day Celebration and Ribfest.
