  • Nice garden to walk through and good view across the river. Benches to sit to see view well placed. Especially good on a sunny day.

  • I lived in Windsor for 2 years and never got to Amherstburg. Now I know what I was missing. This park, The Navy Yard National Historic Site is gorgeous. It is on the Detroit River across from Boblo...

  • Attened open air weekend on a Sunday. Wonderful atmosphere. My kids played the games and had fun with the attendants. Enjoyed a glass of wine at one of the restaurants however they closed at 6. I thought for long weekend they may have extended hours. But overall nice evening out!
  • It's beautiful here in the spring. So many nice flowers an greenery. It's especially nice to come down here for dinner at any one of great restaurants and have ice cream from the waterfront and go for a walk.
  • This was our first time coming to amherstburgs Christmas parade and they didn't disappoint! What a beautiful village they have set up to walk through! If your looking for some.oretry lights and displays it doesn't disappoint!!
  • A great place ... it's like a butterfly you touch around the rose city 20 min drive love it
  • My husband and I spent quite a few happy hours in this park last week. We had come to Amherstburg for a week and every day walked in the park, both during the day, early evening and after dinner. It is a completely smoke-free Park with multiple paved walking trails through it There are quite a few historical plaques about the former naval yard and the War of 1812; as well as a beautiful Monument. There are two gardens there, one is a rhododendron garden and the other a hosta garden with at least 50 varieties of Hosta. It is very well lit for a nighttime stroll, has quite a few park benches and sports a westbound view of Boblo Island and some spectacular sunsets.
