1) goose poop everywhere, even in the month of July, We need to start eating these geese for dinner. Take back our parks from these wild animals.
2) litter everywhere, even in the trees
3) grass is not maintained by park staff
4) tunnel side playground was excellent.
5) Washrooms need to be rebuilt. Disgusting inside.

There was a time many years ago that a stroll along the river was a beautiful site... today if you can even get off the parking lot your lucky.

The park in covered with Canada Geese along with the droppings that follow, it's a true shame.

I wouldn't recommend the walk to anyone!

Each winter over Christmas and New Year the park is decorated with tons of lights. The carousel rides are fun for everyone. Fireworks onNew Year’s Eve for the family makes a wonderful finale.

We love going to Riverside and now with the replacement of the old playground it is even better. The carousel and the train are the best for kids. For adults, the garden facing Woolwich is a nice walk and it gets seasonal decoration so drop by the special holidays to see the nice job they do.

How can one possibly enjoy the park when it is so filthy. The Speed River is dirty. The garbage cans are overflowing, The playground is non existent because it is under construction. Too many Canada Geese and their feces everywhere. I run through the park every week. Disappointing. It was such a nice place to visit but seems to have gone downhill.

Lovely park with a great playground for kids. Nice right on the river with wild life in the area. Nice merry-go-round and train for the kids and adults too! :)

Great place for families and couples, nice for walks and picnics. Love the winter lights. We go when we can to walk and visit the ducks and the kids loved the swings and train and the carousel in the summer.

Would be a beautiful park if they got rid of the geese. You must walk with your head down to make sure you don't step on any of the land mines left by the geese. They mess up the whole park.
