  • Very nice site to bring the family! Very popular area for sightseeing! Strongly recommended to park a bit further away since there is a lot or traffic getting there!
  • A great piece of history to visit in a great area. Don't know if it's always free to visit but it was , maybe due to the 150th anniversary of Canada. Parking cost $4 for all day...
  • Nice place to visit. Relax during summer. Good bike ride or just walking.
  • Very nice place to come visit and do a picnic and the museum is really interesting.The river there is nice to see to
  • Nice piece of history in a beautiful park. The structure itself I can give it 3 stars but I can't blame people who didn't have the technology for more. Cool thing to see, I recommend it, The surrounding of the fort is excellent.
