St. Patricks Island was a forgotten island. After a recreation of the island a few years back it has become a destination for many people and mostly families. They created a safe water area fed by the surrounding river but with less current and hazard to those using it. Lots of paths, play areas, and picnic sites make this a great park just a short walk from the downtown core of the city.
This is one of the paths to the water area. The path goes right through the water and the kids seemed to like riding and walking through the ankle deep water.
