“Nice trails, good daytime walk, great for pets and kids too”
Reviewed 9 May 2013

But, don't stick a needle in your foot. Stay on the well-worn paths and trails and out of the bushes. The par is frequented by the less desirable in the evenings and nights, and can be unsafe for young and old at night. Avoid the riverside at the heat of summer, the Thames gets pretty disgusting and smells like on open sewer. The bike trail makes it most of the way through London and is second only to the Fanshawe Lake trail.

“Great for outdoor fun!”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

Harris Park has many things going on in it through out the warmer months. There are conserts, craft shows, and many cultural events planned anually here. There is often a beer tent that goes along with the entertainment. Quiet times can be spent just walking the main path through the park that follows along the Thames river. The path is very long and starts South of Horton Street and follows the river North through smaller parks, Harris Park and eventually will take you to the Univercity of Western Ontario and on through the Kilarny woods area.

“Really just a bit of grass”
Reviewed 12 October 2012

Harris Park could be so much more. Its a large patch of grass beside the river. Not much more. People walk their dogs, jog, feed the ducks. They also hang around and shoot up and lurk in the woods. There are lights along the paths but why would anyone want to be there at night?
There are a few events held there like Rock the Park, but fewer than there used to be.
Nice for people who live nearby but not really worth a special trip. It is quite a long walk from any parking so its really not a convenient place to visit.
