The newly named RiverWalk Park District encompasses the stately beauty of Prescott's historic downtown and the magnificent shores of the St. Lawrence River.
Visitors and residents alike can enjoy a leisurely stroll downtown, shop at one of the many locally-owned retail stores, or enjoy casual or fine dining in the many restaurants and pubs.
The RiverWalk District also includes one of the longest riverside walking paths in all of Eastern Ontario. You can walk from one end of Prescott to the other all along the St. Lawrence River through the Heritage River Trail (adjacent to Fort Wellington National Historic Site), the Prescott Marina at Sandra S. Lawn Harbour, and, of course, the new RiverWalk Park itself.
Many RiverWalk District buildings have been given historical designation. Much of the area dates to the 19 th century, which makes Prescott a picturesque town, and gives residents and visitors a unique glimpse into Canada's historic past.
Whether you are looking to steep yourself in history or simply relax by the sparkling waters of the St. Lawrence River, spending time in the RiverWalk District is relaxing and enjoyable for all.
