“Nice walk - although don't go out of your way to see it”
Reviewed 30 June 2013

We spent the night in Gannanoque travelling between Toronto and Montreal.

The park has some pretty abstract and bizarre sculptures, as you'd expect and there are plaques explaining the artistic thinking behind them. The river backdrop is attractive - and the garden is at the bottom of the town's interesting high street.

I also liked the information board on the early tourist centre listing the biggest fish to be caught in the river every year. However it takes five minutes to walk through the park - so it's not really worth a detour.

“Relaxing walk”
Reviewed 28 June 2013 via mobile

There's really not much to this. Winding walk along both sides of the river with a few metal sculptures. The herons are impressive, the rest take a while to figure out.

“Gananique is a lovely riverside town. Park is lovely by day or night.”
Reviewed 1 November 2012

I quite enjoyed this park. In the summer the fountain is lit up at night, there are swans, nice for a quick stroll through or picnic. Lots of cool sculptures from local Canadian artists.

“Experience for visitors from the UK”
Reviewed 20 September 2012

View, fountain, not so hot on some of the sculptures. Off the path terraine a little rough for a person with mobility challenges.

“Park with a few sculptures”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

We visited it before our cruise to Thousand Islands. It is not a must. It is a well maintained park with a few sculptures and an old locomotive at the entrance
