Government House Park is located on the north bank of the river, adjacent to Groat Road. Although no specific date is mentioned in the City Archives, it appears the park was in existence during the early 1960s and included a ski and toboggan hill. Along with the toboggan hill that still exists today, the park has many picnic sites and trails for users to enjoy.
Government House Park has 1 picnic site available for reservation during the summer, with tables available for drop-in (no fee) use. Additionally, group reservation site tables that are not reserved in advance may be claimed on a first-come, first-served basis.
A minimum 4-hour reservation is required.
