Joel Stone Park
It is a small but beautiful park located in Gananoque, Ontario. It is located on Water Street, on the shores of the St. Lawrence River. It has an amazing view of St. Lawrence and some of its famous islands. We went in the wintertime, but you can go swimming on the warm summer afternoon and do a picnic.
It has a little stretch of sand, and just you know, it is mainly used by the locals and the boaters who cruise around the 1000 islands. There are no lifeguards present at the beach.
This park was named after Colonel Joel Stone, who lived between (1749 – 1833) and was a United Empire Loyalist. He is celebrated as a founder of Gananoque, Ontario.
