Riverside Park

These are photos I took at Riverside Park back in 2012. If you happen to be in Ontario this is a really pretty park with an antique carousel and a miniature train as well as floral gardens with a floral clock. The Speed River flows through the park and the gardens include a waterfall feature. The park is a delight for the young and young at heart alike.

Can any child resist a carousel, even today?
A floral clock is one of the features of the gardens
Flowers of many varieties bring color and splendor to the park

Flowers, flowers, everywhere
Stone pathways lead visitors through serene surroundings
A variety of shrubs and trees add to the beauty
Waterfall features add to the peace and calm

Strange and beautiful tree roots add interest
A miniature train carries visitors on a tour around the park
Personally, I prefer to walk the paths through trees and shrubbery
Or visitors can cross the bridge that crosses the river and feast their eyes on another vista
The Speed River flows through the city of Guelph and through Riverside Park
People are not the only visitors, water fowl seem to love the park as well, like this Canada Goose
Beauty everywhere since 1955 when the park was first created for the enjoyment of citizens and visitors alike.

      1. No, I have never been there. But, I can see it’s beauty through your images. It should be close until the end of this pandemic. As we know a park is a public place where people might be there in a large group. And that is the thing should be avoided in this pandemic situation.

      2. Absolutely! I am hoping to get back there again one day. There are so many beautiful places to see in Canada. The pandemic won’t last forever and I am looking forward to walking the beautiful paths once again.

      1. When I started this, I was a bit Leary about anybody reading my posts, so I wasn’t too concerned. I was just practicing for when I am retired and have more time to polish it up. I am enjoying it and the people I have met in the blogging world.
