If you haven’t taken a stroll there recently, what are you waiting for? The park is an absolute gem with beautiful flower beds, gardens bursting with colour and benches where you can soak up the evening sunsets and watch the freighters roll by on the Detroit River.

Kudos to the Town’s Parks Department for everything you do year-round to keep the park looking so amazing.

Three other Amherstburg attractions took home the top prize in their respective categories.

Fort Malden National Historic Site again took home top honours in the Best Museum or Heritage Space category. Wolfhead Distillery won again in the Art of a Cocktail category and Armando’s won for Best Pizzeria.
