Ontario Jaycee Gardens Park

Address / Location

543 Ontario St.
Between Ontario Street and Martindale Pond


Jaycee Park is a passive park located in Port Dalhousie Ward. It follows the path of the third Welland Canal that cut diagonally across the city between 1886 and 1932. The canal was filled in, within the park, but the location can clearly be seen along the path of the shrub bed located on the south side of the park. The west end of the park, close to Martindale Pond, contains the exposed remnants of one of the stone locks of the canal. Visitors can enjoy walking, open space, horticultural displays and passive recreation. Beautiful views of Martindale Pond can be found at the west end of the park. There is parking on site. This park is 8.7 hectares.
