We stopped ... we left... too much goose poop everywhere! Info centre did not seem to have much info. Kingston is not dog-friendly according to the info center... no known dog-friendly restaurant patios. Stopping in was not worth the effort.

A quiet, relaxing place with great photo opportunities. Incorporating the visitor centre which apparently used to be the main train station and has an old locomotive outside. Not always easy to get parked close by but there are car parks within walking distance.
Just a nice place to sit quietly and watch the world go by.

This beautiful waterfront park in Downtown Kingston has plenty of photo-worthy spots and is a must-see for tourists. Located right across Kingston City Hall, Confederation Park is the home of the "I in Kingston" 3D sign, Engine 1095 locomotive as well as Kingston's Visitor Information Centre. The arch fountain which occupies the centre of the park serves as a good foreground when taking scenic photos of Kingston City Hall. The park also has several full-size illuminated picture frame installations (photo booths) that look spectacular at dusk. There are plenty of benches to sit on. Face the water and you'll get a good view of the marina and the historic Shoal Tower. There is even a cute but fake lighthouse that serves as the Confederation Basin Marina office.

Nice park next to the Engine and Kingston sign. Great place to walk, have a picnic and take lots of photos. Good place for family photos with the engine and Kingston sign.

It's very active during the weekends. Nice place to stay and enjoy the view. On one side there is the Lake and on the other side the City Hall

There's a cool structure inside of the fountain, an old locomotive, the old train station and views of the Lake! Boat and trolley tours leave from here. Public parking available across the street.

This is a gorgeous little part in a lovely area of Kingston, near the water. You can grab some gelato at Mio Gelato, then sit and enjoy the views.

Worth a visit if you are in town to just take five minutes to chill and take in the views. We sat and ate our lunch here in the sunshine.

There's always something going on there and being right on the water by the marina is a bonus. Right across from City Hall that occasionally gives tours.
